Lee Williamson has revealed that he was unprepared to sit and fight for his place at Watford choosing instead for a spot of unadulterated glory hunting at Preston… if you read between the lines anyway.
The former Northampton and Rotherham journeyman joined promotion chasing Preston on loan for the rest of the season after seeing his place in the Hornets first 11 put at risk by the young exuberance of Jack Cork and Ross Jenkins.
One time Reggae Boy, Williamson, told the official PNE site "[Brendan Rodgers] has made it clear that he`s going to stick with [Cork and Jenkins] for the rest of the season and it`s frustrating not to be involved, so that`s why I`ve taken the chance to come here".
Ok, give Lee some credit. He did state that the young Watford midfield pairing of Cork and Jenkins "have done well" but insists injuries put paid to him having a say as first choice regular.
Erm, so it`s got nothing to do with the 2 kids simply being better than you then Lee?
Williamson then ran the risk of sounding extremely smug, by adding "I know I`ve made the right decision. Preston have got everything to play for, and that`s what`s made my mind up…Preston could be in the Premier League before you know it".
And what does the future hold for Williamson?
Well, it seems he`s as unclear as the rest of us, suggesting "I`m not too sure about the long term for me, but if things go well for me here, I`d like to think something could be sorted out"… " I just want to play as high a level as I can".
All this from a player who 18 months ago was a makeweight in the transaction that bought Will Hoskins to Watford and that most Preston fans consider a "stop gap" whilst their midfield injuries to key players clear up.
Still, you can`t question his ambition.
