Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are the latest clubs thought to be keeping a close eye on the development of Birmingham City academy star Ramello Mitchell according to reports by the Daily Mail.

The 16-year-old forward looks to be one of the most exciting young prospects to come out of the Birmingham City academy in recent years and the player is believed to be being tracked by several clubs.

English Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United are already thought to have watched the youngster in action this season and are considering moves and it has now been reported that Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United are also ready to join the race for Mitchell with the former said to have made an approach for the player.

Mitchell has been a regular scorer for Birmingham City at Under-16 level in recent months and the player has stepped up to the club’s Under-18 side and has continued to blossom. The striker is not yet old enough to sign professional terms at St Andrews therefore any club hoping to sign him will need to agree a compensation package for his services with a tribunal taking place in the event of a ‘no deal’.

Mitchell came off the bench for Birmingham City’s Under-18s as they won 4-2 at Crewe Alexandra last weekend. The player made a huge impact, scoring two goals in the final 33 minutes of the match.
