Sanchez Watt says he is prepared to go out on loan once again, but only if the move is right for him.

The striker had temporary spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Crawley Town last season, where he played a role in helping both sides clinch promotion.

Watt admits they were invaluable learning experiences for him, and says any further move would have to be similarly beneficial.

“I want to go somewhere where I’m learning from it. If the deal’s right, my agents and Arsène Wenger will tell me. I’m waiting for the right club,” he told

“Last season’s loan spells were about maturing. You’ve got to work hard for your place every week. You’re on your own. You have to grow up.

“We were fighting for promotion and every game and training session was vital. You always had to be switched on. It was good for me.”

Watt has scored four goals in three appearances for Arsenal Under-21s this term and is hoping to get a chance with the first team against Coventry in the Capital One Cup next week.

“Anything can happen. I have to be ready," he said. "I’ve got to keep playing like I could be picked for the next game. I’m going to keep working hard and see what happens.”
