Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton are ready to swoop for defender Jordan Bedeau, 17, and forward Callum Styles, 16, who have both broken into League One side Bury’s first team this season, according to ESPN.

The pair are enjoying their first taste of consistent first team football action this campaign at Manchester based club Bury in League One.

Both Bedeau and Styles have broken into Bury’s first team in recent weeks and their emergence has put a number of the Premier League’s big guns on high alert.

Bedeau, a 17-year-old centre-back, has featured in Bury’s last six games, while forward Styles has started in the Shakers last three League One matches.

Last season Callum Styles made history when he became the first player born in the 21st century to play in the Football League when he came on for the last 15 minutes of their final game against Southend United. However the youngster was later embroiled in controversy as the Shakers were then deducted three points by the Football League authorities as Styles had not been properly registered by back room staff for the encounter.

With four of the biggest teams in the country already on the case, struggling Bury are bracing themselves for a double swoop for the pair and reluctantly admit that the youngsters will be moving up the football ladder in the near future.

All four Premier League sides sent scouts to watch the pair in their most recent League One match, a 3-1 loss at home to leaders Sheffield United.
