Junior mentor unsurprised Man Utd, Arsenal scouting Aston Villa whizkid Keinan Davis

Biggleswade FC joint-manager Dave Northfield believes Aston Villa whizkid Keinan Davis has Premier League potential.

Northfield worked with the teen at Biggleswade before he was snapped up by Villa.

Davis is now being watched by Manchester United and Arsenal and Northfield told the Daily Star: "He's taking everything by storm. Is he good enough? Steve Bruce and his agents will tell you that!

“I hope so. He looks confident enough to make it. He's different. Is he there yet? No, but he's only 19.

“If he keeps his head down and working hard and listening, which I'm confident he is, I think the world's his oyster.

“If you want to achieve something, you have to work hard. If he does that, it's achievable for him. If the big boys are looking at him, then he's doing something right."

Northfield also revealed that Biggleswade FC do not have a sell-on clause inserted in Davis' new deal at Villa Park.

He said: “No [there's no clause]. Not a thing. Not in the slightest. We go up there for a game and that's good enough."
