Clubs look to grab Bristol Rovers youngster

Sky Sports understands a host of Premier League clubs are hoping to snap up Bristol Rovers starlet Shaquille Hunter. The 16-year-old winger has up to a dozen top-flight clubs chasing him, and it is believed Manchester City, Liverpool and Fulham are amongst his admirers. Hunter has emerged as Rovers' prized asset and has already been called into the first-team squad for a number of games this season. Rovers are now deciding whether to cash in on Hunter or not, as they are well aware of the proposed Elite Player Performance Plan which, if implemented, this summer could see them lose out on a possible bumper deal. The EPPP sets a tariff for young players being sold to clubs, but if Rovers brokered a deal now they could decide their own fee and deal, which could easily be in excess of £1million. Rovers are likely to have their stance tested this month, with top-flight clubs ready to make offers for the skilful winger.
