NEWPORT County AFC could be in line for another windfall from the sale of a talented teenager.

Youth team goalkeeper Rhys Davies is reportedly set to follow in the footsteps of Lee Evans, Aaron Collins and Regan Poole as the Exiles’ production line continues its recent success.

The Mirror says Premier League outfit Leicester City are in talks to sign Davies and may be prepared to pay up to £100,000 to add the teen to their academy.

Davies played a starring role as County’s under-18s, coached by former first team defender Byron Anthony, won the EFL Youth Alliance Merit League 1 title.

The Argus reported in April that he was on a week-long trial at Leicester, who were then the reigning Premier League champions.

County say there has been no fresh contact from the Foxes as yet but academy manager Anthony sees any interest as a positive.

“When I retired I think we got about two or three scouts coming to the youth team games and now it’s 10 or 12,” said Anthony, who took charge of the academy just over a year ago.

“Our target is to produce players for the first team here and we’ve had one or two make the breakthrough but if one or two move on to bigger and better things then it will keep the academy ticking over.

“The cream always rises to the top and Rhys Davies and Rhys Kavanagh have really stood out this year, along with Momodou Touray as well.

“If they do move on it may well go to a tribunal to decide how much compensation we get but it’s a sign of how well they’ve done and what we’ve achieved this season.”
