Sotona, a Republic of Ireland youth international, spent four years with Manchester United from 2016 to 2020 but left the club after rejecting a three-year contract.

He later joined French side Nice, then managed by Patrick Vieira, before moving back to England in January to sign for Burnley after a season-long loan at SPL side Kilmarnock was cut short.

Sotona made two appearances in the Scottish top flight, both of them as a substitute.

He also spent time on loan at Brentford B and left the Clarets earlier this summer.

Watson most recently played for Wrexham, having previously represented Scunthorpe on more than 100 occasions.
