Man Utd face Southampton competition for West Ham trialist Oscar Borg

Manchester United face competition from Southampton for West Ham United junior Oscar Borg.

Manchester United face competition from Southampton for West Ham United junior Oscar Borg.

The Daily Express says the 16-year-old is current on trial at Old Trafford hoping to impress the club's youth coaches.

Borg, a left sided wing-back, is yet to sign as a scholar for the Hammers and would cost as little as £220,000 in line with youth player compensation laws.

Southampton, who ironically sold England's attacking left-back Luke Shaw to United for a fee rumoured to be £30m, are also keeping tabs on the youngster who West Ham academy coaches have apparently dubbed 'Gareth' due to his similar playing style to the Real Madrid star.
