Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes and preparing for the January transfer window, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Here, the race hots up for a highly-rated young goalkeeper.

Highly-rated Norwegian goalkeeper Kjetil Haug has confirmed he’ll have further trials at Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton after a successful stint at Manchester United, according to Sky Sports News.

Haug has emerged as a potential star of the future in his homeland after some impressive displays for Sarpsborg, who are managed by former Leeds United striker Brian Deane, and he’s attracted interest from a whole host of clubs in the Premier League.

The 15-year-old spent a week-long trial at the champions last week and played for their under-18’s in a match against Aston Villa, with some suggesting he would secure a permanent move to Old Trafford if things went well.

However, while Haug has confirmed his time with United was ‘fantastic’, he revealed that he’s keeping his options open and he’s set to have a three day trial at Man City before heading to further trials at Arsenal and Everton.

“The experience has been fantastic,”

“Here they care about real people to thrive, and everything is organised in the best way.”

“We will be with City for three days now and later this year Arsenal awaits and then another stay at Everton where I have been before.” Haug is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Despite his tender years, it looks like this lad has a bright future in the game judging on the caliber of clubs that are showing an interest in him. Where he’ll end up remains to be seen but he’s got no shortage of options by the sounds of it.
