Liverpool, Spurs tracking Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot

Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot is attracting Premier League interest.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool and Tottenham are among the Premier League clubs keeping track of the 18-year-old prospect.

Around 30 scouts attended Stevenage's Checkatrade Trophy tie with Brighton's Under 21s two weeks ago with the teenager appearing for the full 90 minutes.

His manager, Darren Sarll, said previously of Wilmot: "He plays like a 30-year-old, he's got a wonderful, mature outlook on the game."

Wilmot signed his first professional contract with Stevenage in April, having come up through the club's academy.
