Leicester, Man United Hot on the Heels of Sam van Huffel


Premier League rivals Leicester City and Manchester United are said to be keeping a close eye on Den Haag talent Sam van Huffel.

The 19-year-old midfielder is nearing the end of his contract with the Dutch outfit this summer and is already being linked with a Premier League move.

Leicester City and Manchester City have both sent scouts to watch the teenage sensation in action this season for Den Haag’s Under-21 side.

Sam van Huffel is a highly-rated playmaker in his homeland and is widely regarded as one of the biggest talents in the Netherlands.

He is tipped to make a move to the UK this summer with Aston Villa and Hibernian also said to be monitoring his progress.
