Sunderland are competing with a number of English and Scottish Premier League sides for the signature of 15-year-old winger Bruno Davidson, a report from The Scottish Sun has claimed.
Davidson is currently on the books of the Edinburgh based boys’ team Hutchinson Vale, where his performances have clearly been catching the eye, with a number of sides credited with an interest in the teenager.
According to the latest report, Davidson has already been on trial with two Premier League clubs in the form of Southampton and Liverpool, while another English top-flight duo – Wolves and Leicester, are also said to be keeping tabs on the youngster.
Will Sunderland win promotion this season?
It seems however, that Sunderland have moved to get the drop on their higher level rivals, with the report claiming that the Black Cats have already made an offer for the winger to bring him to the League One club.
But even that looks it will face competition, with reigning Scottish champions Celtic also apparently putting in a bid for the youngster, as they too look to secure his services for the future.
This is an interesting one.
Given the size and number of clubs that are interested in Davidson, it certainly seems as though he has plenty of potential, which could make him a really good signing in the future.
It appears therefore as though Sunderland have been smart by getting their bid in early for him here, since it may be difficult for them to compete with any of those Premier League sides should they decide to make the move.
Regardless of who does or doesn’t come in for him, this is a huge decision for Davidson to make at 15-years-old, so he ought to make sure he takes the time he needs to make the right call here, be signing anything with any of these sides.
