Man Utd, Spurs scouts check on Peterborough teen Ricky-Jade Jones

The Premier League battle for Peterborough United teen Ricky-Jade Jones is heating up.

The Daily Mail says Jones has featured four times for Peterborough this season, scoring on his full debut against Cambridge and first FA Cup appearance against Stevenage, both this month.

Boss Darren Ferguson handed Jones his league debut against Burton on Saturday when talent spotters from Manchester United, Tottenham, Southampton and Burnley were watching on.

Liverpool, Leicester, Manchester City and Arsenal have also made checks on the lightning quick youngster who can play through the middle or out wide.

Spurs were the first club to test the waters with a £2million approach which was knocked back but Peterborough expect that to just be the start of an auction.
