Newcastle, Everton chasing Sunderland wonderkid Chris Rigg

Sunderland wonderkid Chris Rigg is a target for Premier League clubs.

The Sun says Newcastle and Everton are both trying to sign S Rigg.

The 14-year-old is incredibly rated in the £1million class, despite his tender years.

The midfield dynamo is at the Black Cats academy and tipped to move in the summer to one of the Premier League clubs.

Rigg has risen through the ranks and already plays in the Sunderland Under-18 team.

He has two goals in seven games in the U18 Premier League, and one assist.

The local lad comes from a family who support Newcastle United but he may head for Merseyside.

The race is intense as experts say Rigg is the best player in the country in his age group.
