Leicester City are taking a look at a young non-league defender. According to a report by 90min, Met Police defender Lucas Ness is on trial at Leicester City and hoping to win himself a contract with the Premier League club.
Ness currently plays for Met Police in the Southern League Premier Division South. Met Police play in the seventh tier of English football – three below the Football League. He is already playing first-team football there.
The 17-year-old plays in defence for Met Police and he is in their first-team this season. Met Police have given Ness permission to train with Leicester and try to earn himself a deal at The King Power Stadium. Steve Beaglehole (U23) and Trevor Peake (U18) will probably be running the rule over the former Fulham starlet.
Ness has a golden opportunity to join an exciting project at Leicester. He is quite some way off being a first-team player but Ness is already performing well at senior level, showing he can cope with the physicality of the game already.
Leicester have a clear route to the first-team and that could tempt Ness into completing this move. With Harvey Barnes, Hamza Choudhury and Ben Chilwell all thriving in the first-team, Ness knows he will get chances if he is good enough.
