Reigning Premier League champions Leicester City have joined the list of Harry Limb suitors.

The Wisbech Town teenager is a player in demand after impressing for at United Counties League Premier Division level this season.

The 17-year-old forward will spend five days training with Swansea City next week, but he is now also on the radar of the Foxes, who have watched him twice in recent weeks.

And two League One clubs – Peterborough United and MK Dons – have also registered their interest in the hot prospect.

Wisbech boss Dick Creasey said: “The amount of interest in Harry has taken me by surprise.

“Leicester and MK Dons have both seen him play, while Posh have also been in contact.

“I’m guessing clubs have picked up on the media coverage and had him watched.

“He’ll spend time with the Academy set-up at Swansea and is going to feature in an Under 23 game while he is there.

“He has taken it all in his stride and hopefully he can do himself justice down there.”
