HITC Sport understands a host of Championship and League One clubs are tracking non-league starlet Reggie Young.

Championship duo Queens Park Rangers and Brentford and League One side Gillingham are eyeing a move for highly-rated Woking winger Reggie Young, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Young has emerged on the radar of clubs higher up the football pyramid after impressing on loan at Farnborough this season.


The 19-year-old joined Farnborough on loan from Woking in October and Young has caught the eye at the Hampshire club.

The skilful attacker has flourished with regular game time at Farnborough in the Evo-Stik League South Premier South Table, scoring seven goals and creating five assists.

Young has been instrumental in Farnborough's current 10-game unbeaten run and scouts from Football League clubs have been making regular checks on the wide-man in recent weeks.

Championship duo QPR and Brentford have been tracking the speedy winger for some time and they are ready to move for Young at the end of the season.

Gillingham have been made aware of the interest from the two Championship clubs and they are hopeful of convincing the teenager to join them with the offer of a quicker pathway to regular first-team football.

Young signed a one-year deal with Woking last summer meaning he will soon be a free agent and, with the player on loan at Farnborough until the end of the season, it is almost certain he has played his last game for parent club Woking.
