Manchester United, Newcastle and West Ham are following Port Vale's exciting young forward Baylee Dipepa.

The 17-year-old, who was a substitute in England U17s European Championship match against Portugal on Friday, has already made 26 first team appearances for Vale in League One and the EFL Trophy.

He became the club's second youngest goal scorer in March scoring in a 2-1 defeat against Shrewsbury.

He scored twice on his international debut against Northern Ireland and grabbed another brace in England's Euro Championship opener against France.

Aston Villa, Borussia Dortmund and Red Bull Leipzig have also checked on Dipepa this season but Manchester United are considered leaders for his signature as it stands.
