Charlton Athletic's 22-year-old is reportedly due to move back to the Scottish Premiership this season.

Former Celtic star Tony Watt is set to move to back to Scottish football by signing for Hearts from Charlton Athletic, according to BBC Sport, and Bhoys fans were quick to take to Twitter to have their say on such a move.
The 22-year-old was part of the Addicks side that were relegated to League One last season, even though he took in two separate loan spells at Championship rivals across the campaign.
The striker played 14 times for Charlton, 10 times for Cardiff and 11 times for Blackburn, scoring just seven times collectively.
And now it looks like he is set to return to Scotland, where he is most famous for an exciting emergence at Celtic that saw him heralded as a star in the making, with Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson looking into signing Watt on a one-year loan deal.

The attacker arrived from Airdrie as a teenager in 2011, and scored a brace on his debut against Motherwell in 2012. That promise swelled the season after, when Watt saw more first team football and scored a famous Champions League winner against the mighty Barcelona in a 2-1 win in Glasgow.
Unsurprisingly, it rendered Watt a hero, but the youngster failed to build on such a high profile moment, and ended up leaving Celtic Park for Belgium in 2014, first on loan, and then permanently signing for Standard Liege, only to move to Charlton a few months later.
He will be hoping of returning to form at Tynecastle Stadium, and fans of Celtic tweeted their thoughts on the move:
