Everton and Middlesbrough are interested in Darlington defender Josh Heaton following his performances at the V9 Academy.
The 21-year-old centre-back, who started out at Preston North End, was among a number of success stories from the week-long event which looks to give non-league players a chance to impress league scouts.
England international Jamie Vardy took a break from his World Cup preparations on Friday to oversee the young hopefuls at Manchester City’s training complex which culminated in two showpiece games.

More than 150 scouts turned out and Heaton gave a strong account of himself to impress watching clubs.
Newly-promoted Coventry City also moved to snap up Morgan Williams, an 18-year-old centre back who plays for Evo-Stik Premier League club Mickleover Sports.
Stevenage have also made an offer to 25-year-old striker Cody Cooke from National League South club Truro City.

Cooke scored 13 goals in National League South in 2017-18 as Truro reached the play-offs and also helped the club reach the FA Cup first round for the first time in their history.
Portsmouth and Exeter City are also keen on Cooke.
However, one youngster who may be spoilt for choice is 17-year-old Sam McCallum from Bostik League South club Herne Bay.
The teenage midfielder, who was rejected by Gillingham as a boy, earned rave reviews and is expected to receive a number of offers.
