According to the Daily Record, scouts from Championship promotion hunting trio Leeds United, West Brom and Norwich City were all in attendance of Motherwell’s clash with St Mirren to watch youngster Jake Hastie.
Scottish starlet Jake Hastie – currently playing in the Scottish Premiership for Motherwell – has caught the eye of a number of clubs south of the border. Championship promotion hunting trio Leeds United, West Brom and Norwich City were just three of many clubs reportedly scouting the youngster on Wednesday night.
20-year-old Hastie has impressed recently at Fir Park with Motherwell. Prior to the New Year, the youngster had only played three times for The Well. Now, having started in each of the club’s last four games, he is catching the eye of potential suitors.
The Scot has starred in Motherwell’s in recent weeks, winning four games from their last four. In four games, Hastie has picked up three goals and an assist after returning from his loan spell with Scottish Championship club Alloa Athletic, where he scored three goals and provided four assists in 23 games.
He spent last season on loan with Scottish League One side Airdrieonians, picking up four goals and six assists in 32 games as he helped them finish in 7th place.
Fellow Championship side Swansea City were also in attendance to scout Hastie, along with League One title chasers Sunderland.
The Daily Record writes that the winger has been in discussions with the club regarding a possible contract extension, but the two parties are not close to agreeing on a deal and he could leave the club in the summer for a cut price.
