Leicester confident beating Chelsea to deal for Hartlepool keeper Young after training stint

Leicester City are confident of signing Hartlepool United goalkeeper Brad Young.

The Sun says Young, 18, has been to the Foxes for training and talks — and his dream move may be sorted out this week.

The 6ft 4in Pools wonderkid almost joined Chelsea last season.

He has been with England's youth set-up while spending time on loan at Blyth Spartans.

But a deal with the Foxes is close.

Sunderland-born Young came through the youth academy at National League-leaders Hartlepool to earn his pro contract at Victoria Park.

He would likely link up with Steve Beaglehole's Under-23s set-up at Leicester.
