Watt given FA Cup clearance by Gunners

05 January 2011 04:00
Leeds will have on-loan youngster Sanchez Watt available to face parent club Arsenal in the FA Cup on Saturday. The 19-year-old forward, who is on a season-long loan at Elland Road, was expected to be ineligible for the third-round clash at the Emirates but has been given the green light to play by Arsene Wenger. Watt, who is yet to score in 14 appearances for United so far this campaign, returned to first-team action against Middlesbrough on New Year's Day after missing the start of the festive period through illness. He was then an impressive 57th-minute substitute versus Cardiff on Tuesday.
