Leicester City are lining up a move for youngster Lucas Ness after undergoing a trial with the club.
According to 90Min, The 17-year-old plays for Metropolitan Police. However, they sanctioned the trial for the young defender and will allow him to move if he wishes.
Ness was formerly a youth player at Fulham and has attracted a lot of interested from clubs in the top two tiers of English football, despite playing for the Met Police six leagues below the Premier League.
With Ness being only 17-years-old, there is surely little risk involved in this deal. The defender has so much time on his side to develop into a player that can be of use to the Foxes or later sold for potential profit.
The previous report suggests that a host of teams are interested in the defender; therefore, there can’t be many reasons putting them off signing him.
The footballer has shown that he has a fairly thick skin by playing men’s football at such a young age, which could give him a bit of advantage on the other youngsters at Leicester as they may not have experienced that kind of football.
With Leicester already having a key player in Jamie Vardy plying his trade in the non-league, Leicester may be willing to take a punt on the defender.
As previously mentioned, it’s a deal which presents few risks for Leicester so there’s no reason they shouldn’t go ahead with it.
Rodgers also has a good record with youth and will be willing to give the player a chance if he is good enough, as he has shown with Hamza Choudhury and Harvey Barnes.
He can also learn from players such as Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans who both have a wealth of experience behind them; both have Premier League winners’ medals in their cabinet and are above the age of 30.
