Newcastle, Sheffield Utd watching Cardiff prospect Kieron Evans

Cardiff City prospect Kieron Evans is attracting Premier League interest.

Walesonline reports Sheffield United, West Brom and Newcastle are keeping tabs on the player, who is yet to make his first team debut.

He has been catching the eye with a string of impressive performances in the Bluebirds' academy and his age and lack of first team experience would suggest the interest, if true, would be with one eye on the future.

The 19-year-old has caught the eye of top-flight suitors such as Newcastle United, West Brom, Burnley and Sheffield United, with a goal and assist in last week's win over Millwall serving only to intensify interest in recent days. He also scored in the Bluebirds' triumph over Severnside rivals Bristol City on Tuesday afternoon.

It is understood Evans is thought of very highly by academy figureheads at Cardiff, and indeed those working within the first team, and there is no desire to see him leave.
