Rumour: Peter To Partick

There are pretty strong rumours circulating that suggest Peter Weatherson will sign a pre-contract agreement with Partick Thistle in January.

I've also heard it said that Peter would like the move to go through in January. Presumably this would result in Thistle paying Morton a token sum in compensation - similar to when St. Johnstone offered £10,000 to take Chris Millar early in the 2007/08 season.

As I've said before, I don't usually post rumours but I've now heard this from several reliable sources. One of which is supposed to have come from a fan talking to Peter. In this conversation Peter is said to have stated that he doesn't feel appreciated by the Morton fans and would like a new start.

Thistle manager Ian McCall has made no secret of his admiration of Weatherson and once described him as the best striker of his kind in the division.

As I stated at the outset, this is only a rumour and may not be true, or turn out to be true, but the sources are pretty solid and it looks like Weatherson might be leaving Cappielow after seven seasons of goals and controversy.
