Premier League and Championship interest in Barwell's FA Cup hero Brady Hickey


HITC Sport understands that Leicester City and Leeds United are among those keeping a close eye on the teenage midfielder.

A host of league clubs are eyeing up a deal for non-league ace and FA Cup hero Brady Hickey, HITC Sport understands from sources close to a potential deal.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been earning rave reviews this season for the Northern Premier League outfit Barwell, who he joined from St Andrews just six months ago.

The England Schoolboy international has attracted the attention from a number of clubs this season, and he has already hit double figures from midfield for Barwell.

The likes of Leicester City, Burnley, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United are among around a dozen League clubs to be keeping regular tabs on Hickey.

Hickey further enhanced his burgeoning reputation as he scored the winner for Barwell in the final FA Cup qualifying round win over Rushden & Diamonds this week, securing their place in the first round proper.

His progress will continue to be monitored closely, and it could be that he soon finds himself on the move.
