Newcastle, Southampton chasing MK Dons wonderkid Recoe Martin

Newcastle and Southampton are chasing MK Dons wonderkid Recoe Martin.

The Mirror says the Premier League clubs along with Championship high fliers Norwich are keeping tabs on Recoe Martin, 18, who has been prolific at youth level for the League Two club.

Left footed striker Martin caught the eye after scoring five goals in 17 minutes as MK Dons' under-18s came back from 2-0 down to beat Leyton Orient 5-2 last week.

England and Tottenham star Alli also started at MK Dons who have gained a reputation for producing home grown youngsters.

But Martin has yet to sign a pro contract and could leave on a compensation package which makes him even more attractive to the big guns.
