Notts County confirms Man Utd interest in Speiss

United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham are all monitoring the progress of the highly-rated 18-year-old keeper.

“Man Utd have been looking at him for a long time,” said Notts County’s head of youth Mick Leonard in the Nottingham Evening Post.

“There were also scouts from Man City and Tottenham at our youth game against Doncaster last week and Arsenal watched him when he was out on loan at Lewes.

“He’s as good as any young goalkeeper I have seen and I wouldn’t be surprised if any of the big clubs did want him. He’s got everything a modern goalkeeper needs.

“He’s got a lot of ability and a great attitude. He’s very mature and is physically very big so he commands his box. He’s brave and he kicks the ball well.

“He can go all the way if he keeps working as hard as he is now. He has got so much potential.

“I would love to see him play for our first team. I believe he’s good enough and, if he did, his value would only rise even more.”
