Bayern Munich are showing an interest in Aston Villa prospect Easah Suliman.

The defender, 16, has captained England at Under 17 level and impressed Bayern's scouts playing in the FA Youth Cup.

Suliman, who is from Hall Green in Birmingham, has been with Villa since he was eight years old and was spotted playing in a tournament at Butlins.

He turns 17 in January and has shown versatility by playing at left back as well as centre back.

Bayern are continuing to scour England for potential talent as they did with Tranmere protege Dale Jennings.

The Liverpool-born youngster failed to settle though and has since returned to England with Championship Barnsley.
