Huddersfield Town have reportedly won the race to sign Port Vale winger Luke Daley with the Valiants set to earn a compensation fee for the 16 year-old.
The Huddersfield Examiner say Huddersfield Town have beaten Liverpool and Southampton to the winger’s signature.
Cheshire Schoolboys captain Daley has been compared to Ryan Giggs and has been in the Vale junior ranks for eight years.
“Luke decided on Huddersfield because he felt they were the best team for his development as a pro footballer, ” the player’s father Terry told the Warrington Guardian newspaper.
“The all-round feedback is his speed, his running with the ball, tracking back and defending, it’s all nine out of 10. Luke’s had many comments saying he plays like a young Ryan Giggs and Sane from Manchester City.
“Luke’s always had interest from clubs but he was happy where he was at Port Vale. When he was around 11 to 12 he went to Everton for four months and then decided he didn’t want to sign for them, that he wanted to go back to what he called ‘his team Port Vale’.
“It’s his job now, he will be getting paid from July 1st. He just has to continue to work hard.”
