Premier League side Manchester United are interested in signing Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis, according to reports.

The 19-year-old has recently become a regular fixture in Steve Bruce’s side at Villa – making eight starts in the Championship this campaign – and some have tipped him to become the next Dwight Yorke.

The Sun on Sunday reports that Arsenal and Everton are also in the hunt for his signature but the Red Devils remain the favourites to land Davis.

Villa picked the youngster up from Biggleswade Town after he joined the Southern League Premier Division outfit following his release from Stevenage.

And Biggleswade Under-18s boss Dave Northfield thinks Davis is destined for stardom as he possesses a lot of key attributes.

“It’s been an incredible journey,” Northfield said.

“When Stevenage released him, they said he would never play professionally.

“But Keinan can play so many ways. He’s strong and great at holding up the ball but he’s also deceptively quick.”
