Aston Villa and Rangers among clubs chasing Shrewsbury 'keeper Callum Burton

HITC Sport understands a host of clubs are tracking Shrewsbury 'keeper.

A number of clubs in England and Scotland are keeping tabs on highly-rated Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Callum Burton, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Burton is regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in the country having represented England at all youth levels all the way through to the under-19s and he was also on standby for the under-20s recently.

The 19-year-old is tipped for a big future and he was invited on a training camp for the best young keepers in the country with England Under-21s goalkeeping coach Martin Thomas last year.

Burton has yet to make his first-team debut for Shrewsbury as he is currently No.1 keeper behind Jayson Leutwiler and Mark Halstead.

However, the athletic shot-stopper enjoyed two loan spells at Nuneaton and Southport last season, making seven first-team appearances during his time out on loan.

Burton's progress has alerted a number of clubs higher up the football pyramid with the likes of Aston Villa, Wolves, Burnley and Scottish giants Rangers all watching him on a number of occasions.

Burton is out of contract at Shrewsbury this summer and the youngster's suitors are weighing up moves to sign the keeper who has been earning comparisons with former Shrewsbury keeper Joe Hart.
