Sky Bet League Two new boys Barnet have rejected a £250,000 bid from Premier League side Swansea City for striker Matt Stevens, reports the Daily Mail.
The 17-year-old has been the stand out player in the Barnet Under-18 side, scoring more than 50 goals last season.
The youngster was released by Championship side Reading last summer despite scoring 32 goals for their Under-16 side and was quickly snapped up by Bees manager Martin Allen.
Stevens, who had originally been a midfielder, became Barnet’s youngest ever player when he came on an a substitute against Alfreton last September as Allen’s men went on to win the Conference.
Premier League clubs had been to watch the striker throughout the season but Swansea are the first to make a firm offer.
Stevens spoke fondly about working with Martin Allen: ‘I think he is a real great manager. He looks after his players. Like the older boys, he is always asking how they feel and if they are all right to train and things like that.
