Man Utd are known for bringing through top prodigies at Carrington.

The Red Devils boast numerous club-grown players in their ranks, including England World Cup star Marcus Rashford.

And Alejandro Garnacho is the latest ace to get a crack at first-team action this season.

But there is now a new kid on the block at Old Trafford.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United have handed a trial to highly-rated forward Princewill Ehibhatiomhan.

The 17-year-old is available for nothing after leaving Reading on a free transfer.

The Championship club were desperate to keep Ehibhatiomhan and offered him a new contract.

But the ambitious teen turned it down to pursue chances elsewhere.

Ehibhatiomhan first trained with Chelsea over the summer, scoring in pre-season matches against Leeds and Coventry.

He then went to Southampton, where he hit the target against Crystal Palace and Fulham.

And Ehibhatiomhan is now hoping he can find a home with United.

He played for their U17s last week in the 2-1 Premier Cup win over Blackburn Rovers, but was unable to grab a goal.

Ehibhatiomhan already has a strike for England’s U17s though, scoring in last year’s 2-0 win over Romania.

And it now remains to be seen if United offer him a long-term deal before the January transfer market opens.
