Dylan Watts of UCD will be signing for the Premier League champions Leicester City in the next 48 hours for an undisclosed fee according to a report in the Irish Independent.
He is also expected to make his debut on Tuesday for Leicester’s U-23 development team if the transfer can get sorted and is put through on time.
The UCD manager Collie O’Neill had this to say on the teenager ,”He is a confident player, who displays no nerves no matter how big the occasion,” he said.
“He has great feet, is very comfortable on the ball, and has great courage, always wanting to get on the ball. He has a great future ahead of him, and if he continues to make the progress he has made in the last two years I see no reason why he can’t make the Irish team.”
