Sheffield news Host of Europe's biggest clubs already watching Daniel Jebbison MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - The Blades academy prospect looks a real talent after yesterday's standout display against Everton, but already a host of Europe's biggest clubs have been credited with showing interest
Breaking News ! We are only two games in to his Sheffield United career and already it is being claimed that Europe's biggest clubs are watching Daniel Jebbison. The 17-year-old made history last night at Goodison Park as he became the youngest player to score on his first start in the Premier League. His goal, sliding home Jack Robinson's ball across the six yard box on seven minutes, sealed a 1-0 win for the Blades and announced his arrival on the scene in style. It was only his second appearance at first team level but already he looks a real prospect. However, United may have to fend off interest in his services after reports emerged this weekend claiming a clutch of Europe's biggest clubs have been keeping tabs on his progress. The latest to be linked is Borussia Dortmund, who have made a habit of snapping up English youngsters. The German side signed Jadon Sancho from Manchester City's academy, and he has gone on to become a revelation at Signal Iduna Park. The 21-year-old is one of the hottest players in Europe and looks set for a huge move having become an England regular. They have repeated that trick with Jude Bellingham, signing the 17-year-old from Birmingham City and he has also become a full England international. And it seems they now want to do the same with Jebbison. However, they face competition from German rivals Bayern Munich and English sides Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton, who have already been tracking him.
. He was signed in July 2019 after successful trials and has been prolific for the Blades this season. He has found the net nine times in 20 appearances for both the under 18s and under 23s and was a key part of the FA Youth Cup run to the quarter-finals, scoring four times in four games. Interim manager Paul Heckingbottom, who has played a key part in his development in the under 23s, says he has fully deserved his first team chance. He said: "It was a fantastic moment for him. "It couldn't have worked out better for him. "He deserved his start, he's a hard working lad, you could see that here. We know he scores goals and he's developed really, really quickly. "I told him the day before he was starting. The fact he works so hard changed my mind to start him, we needed to stretch the defence and he would give us that."
