Leeds, Southampton target Birmingham City youngster George Hall

Birmingham City youngster George Hall is attracting Premier League interest.

The Daily Mail says Hall is attracting interest from Leeds United and Southampton ahead of a potential summer transfer.

The highly-rated 17-year-old was given his first team debut against QPR back in January when manager Lee Bowyer utilised him as a number ten playing off striker Troy Deeney but is capable of playing in numerous positions.

Coaches and scouts saw him play as a holding midfielder for England during a tournament in Spain in November and that versatility plus game intelligence is continuing to attract suitors.

Despite the England U18 international only signing his first professional contract in November, a two and a half year deal, that has failed to deter interested parties keen to snap up a youngster who has plenty of potential.
