Ipswich Town are reportedly set to beat a host of Premier League clubs to the signature of 16-year-old wonderkid Kai Brown.

Teenager Brown, an attacking midfielder, has broken into the first team at Bostik Premier side Grays Athletic this season, making his debut in September against Bowers & Pitsea.

He scored his first goal the following month against Potters Bar Town and has impressed since, attracting attention from several scouts in the Premier League and below.
