Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is excited about what he sees from Will Keane.

Keane further staked his claims for a first-team breakthrough next season with four goals as United were crowned Premier League Reserve North champions on Monday.

The Manchester Evening News says Ferguson believes Keane can be one of his next generation of starlets, along with Paul Pogba, Zeki Fryers and Larnell Cole to make the step up at United - and his prodigious form at youth and reserve level has got those at Old Trafford hoping he can become a rare, home-grown, top class striker at the club, along with Danny Welbeck.
