If HITC Sport, and what they ‘understand’ is correct, Matt Stevens could be destined for the Premier League? And sooner rather than later!

Others have since jumped on this bandwagon….

Snapped up following his release by Reading last summer Barnet’s prolific U18 striker Stevens is reportedly wanted by topflight clubs including Crystal Palace and Swansea with Barnet’s ‘resolve to be tested’ by offers before the transfer window closes?

Stevens, highly rated by Martin Allen, was given his debut last September and in coming off the bench he became the youngest ever first-team performer for the Bees but his 50+ goals for the U18 side last season has seen interest grow in the 17-year-old.

Allen would be keen to retain him, and his first-team chances would be far greater at the Hive than any Premier League club at the moment, but once they come calling it’s hard to fend them off!

Can the Bees, assuming there is the level of interest reports, do this here?
