Manchester United are planning a move for Reading goalkeeper Coniah Boyce-Clarke in the January transfer window, according to a report.
The 16-year-old has already impressed at the Royals, recently signing a new contract with the club after securing regular game time for the Under-23s side.
According to the Daily Mirror, United, who have been tracking the youngster’s development since he was 15, are also impressed by his potential and want to snap him up in the New Year.
The newspaper adds that Red Devils scouts were sent to watch Boyce-Clarke earlier this week, when the Englishman was the hero for the Three Lions‘ Under-17s side in their Syrenka Cup final penalty shootout against Poland.
What’s more, United goalkeeping coach Richard Hartis is said to be familiar with Boyce-Clarke’s potential after the pair worked together at the Football Association to get the goalkeeper through the England age groups.
Elsewhere, another United transfer report has claimed that the Red Devils remain firmly interested in signing a target they missed out on earlier this summer.
