Manchester United are lining up a raid on Southampton's academy for teen Harrison Reed.

The Mirror says Old Trafford scouts have watched the 19-year-old, who has made five appearances - four as a substitute, and starting December's League Cup loss to Sunderland - for Saints this season and is tipped for the very top.

Reed is the latest rising star to come through at the south coast club after Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Luke Shaw, and champions United could move for him this summer.
