The highly-rated teenager has represented England at under-15s level, and will hope to follow in the footsteps of former Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford.

Pickford, 24, joined Everton for £30million in 2017, but only after earning the number one jersey at the Stadium of Light first.

While a move to Old Trafford may seem appealing, a potential path into the first team would surely be clearer at the Stadium of Light.
