Man Utd trials for Exeter City striker Sonny Cox

Manchester United have taken young Exeter City striker Sonny Cox on trial.

Speaking to Devon Live about the trial, Exeter City boss Matt Taylor said United are the latest club to show interest in the 15-year-old.

"Everyone is interested in signing him," Taylor said. "He has scored so many goals at youth team level, not just the U16s but the U18s and U23s.

"I think he is playing in a game tonight, one at the weekend and then at the start of next week, but this is the third Premier League club he has been to and there will be more.

"I think everyone understands what is going to happen in relation to Sonny and the same with Harry Lee.

"He is getting great experience for himself and they are not trials but an opportunity for Premier League clubs to show their training facilities and get close eyes on Sonny as he is one of the most in-demand players at all levels at any age throughout the country.

"He is one we want to keep as we want to get him close to the first team and would be such a shame if he is another one who goes before his time and before the fans get to see him play."
