Dulwich Hamlet teenage defender Michael Chambers has the country’s biggest clubs chasing his signature.

The Daily Mail says Chambers, a teenage defender at Dulwich Hamlet, is the subject of an unlikely transfer pursuit involving no less than Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and seven other clubs.

Ten teams ranging from United to Bristol City, and including Everton and Aston Villa, were represented at Dulwich Hamlet’s Ryman League fixture last Saturday.

Chambers, 17, plays at centre half for Dulwich, who are top of their division. He is 6ft 2in, left-footed and has a growing reputation for elegance on the ball.

Originally with Millwall and then in Reading’s youth team, Chambers was thought to lack aggression and was released by the Championship club.

But a series of displays in senior amateur football have made him the recent focus of youth scouts across the country.
