A report in The Scottish Sun has claimed that Crystal Palace and Swansea City are among a group of sides chasing Morton starlet Jai Quitongo.

The 19-year-old was the subject of a summer bid from League Two side Doncaster Rovers, The Scottish Sun reports, but it appears that Donny will face an uphill battle if they hope to land him with a future bid as, after a great start to the campaign, it appears that he has put himself on several other teams' radar.

The Scottish Sun suggests that the Premier League pair, as well as Scottish Premiership side Hearts, have been alerted to the youngster's ability, and are considering making a move of their own.

The winger has been exceptional this term. He has scored five times in all competitions, including four in the League Cup to inspire Jim Duffy's men to the semi-final where they will meet Aberdeen for a place in the final where one of the Old Firm will be awaiting.

And as if his performances this term were not enough to attract attention, The Scottish Sun adds that he is out of contract in the summer, so one of the interested parties may be able to land him for a significantly lower price than a player with his potential should normally command.
