Sky Sports reporter in six-figure Rocco Vata update

Rocco Vata is nearing a Celtic exit. The Irish youth international is available this summer for a compensation figure and English Championship side Watford are in talks over a deal.

As reported by Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph, Vata has met with Watford’s representatives and has visited their North London facilities.

Vata impressed with the Celtic B Team. However, he has made just four appearances for the First Team in his time with the club. Bologna and Coma are still hoping that they can convince the player to swap Glasgow for Italy; however, the update appears to be that Watford are in the prime position to sign the player.

Vata joined CAA Base Agency last summer, which indicated that he would be likely to move on in the summer but no deal was forthcoming leaving him to be deployed in the Lowland Leagues by Stephen McManus and Darren O’Dea.
