Anyone got an inside track on who KR is off to scout in Belgium? Any young English players playing out there? Or another Eden Hazard?!??
 
George Hirst I’ve heard.19 year old English striker. Was billed as the next big thing when at Sheffield Wednesday, capped by england at all ages up to U20. Playing for OH Leuven in the second tier, managed by Nigel Pearson.

Supposedly only went to Belgium as a way around the compensation rules. OH Leuven are owned by King Power (Leicester owners’ company). Leicester wanted him but were put off by the potential compensation so OH Leuven snapped him up with the view to then moving him on to Leicester, thus avoiding the big fees. Remember a Guardian article about this.

Seeing as OHL played Friday night, I doubt it...
