LEEDS have joined Manchester City and Spurs in the chase for Celtic wonderkid Rory Mahady. The 15-year-old is one of Europeâ€™s top goalkeeping prospects, with several clubs keen to prise him away from Celtic. But the big English trio are leading the pack.
Mahady has been playing for the Hoops U17s but canâ€™t sign an official professional contract until his 16th birthday in August. That has sparked a race to land him, with City first out of the blocks to express an interest in the last few weeks. But they now face stiff competition from their Premier League rivals.
Celtic do not want to lose the teenager but are increasingly resigned to the fact theyâ€™ll likely be gazumped by someone down south this summer. With English clubs now limited by Brexit rules, they are increasingly looking north for young players and trying to poach the best of them. Rangers look set to lose highly-rated striker Rory Wilson to Aston Villa. And 16-year-old Ben Doak swapped Celtic for Liverpool in April despite getting minutes for Ange Postecoglou's first team. Celtic already lost young goalkeeper Vincent Angelini who made the Premier League switch to Watford during the 20/21 season at the age of 17. And Mahady is set to become the next promising Old Firm kid to opt for England instead of trying to make the breakthrough in Glasgow.
Immer wieder das gleiche Spiel. Dieses Abwerben von Spielern, die gerade mal 15 sind, macht eine nachhaltige Jugendarbeit wirklich extrem schwer und oftmals einfach wahnsinnig frustrierend.
