Leeds United and Aston Villa are both interested in signing Daniel Jebbison, although Everton have made a bid, TeamTalk suggest.

Interest rising

The young Sheffield United forward is now attracting plenty of attention after he burst on to the scene last year.

Jebbison broke the record of becoming the youngest ever player to score on their first Premier League start last campaign, as he found the back of the net against Everton, at the age of just 17.

Leeds, Everton and Villa have now all taken note of his talents.

It seems that all three of sides would have to pay big money to take him away from Elland Road though.

Everton bid rejected

Everton have already seen a bid of £5 million rejected, and it remains to be seen if Leeds or Villa make rival offers.

Leeds certainly have been prepared to invest in their under-23 side in recent years.

However, the Whites tend to prefer to sign players as they are running out of contract, rather than offering big fees.

Villa, meanwhile, also are likely to see Jebbison as one for the future, rather than an immediate starter.

Villa already have Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings competing to play up-front, so they all well stocked in forward areas.
