Transfer news LIVE: Cristiano Ronaldo in Bayern-Atletico tug of war, Spurs ‘to sign Djed Spence’, PSG want Messi renewal


Ex-Prem stars’ sons join rivals

Former Premier League stars Emile Heskey and Lee Grant looked proud as punch as their sons celebrated signing for Manchester City.

The former striker, who played for Liverpool and England, and the ex-Manchester United goalkeeper, who retired this summer, were only too happy to wear the colours of the Citizens after Jaden Heskey and True Grant penned their respective scholarship deals.

The duo were among 14 youngsters to commit their futures to the champions’ academy after impressing in City’s lower age groups.

All of the starlets will now be part of the Under-18 team this term and have already begun pre-season training with head coach Ben Wilkinson.

The other teenagers to sign deals were Joel Ndala, Jahmai Simpson Pusey, Justin Oboavwoduo, Isaiah Dada-Mascoll, Lakyle Samuel, Michael Okeke, Alfie Harrison, Ashton Muir, Charlie Gray, Ezra Carrington, Sebastian Naylor and Jacob Wright.

However, it was the offspring of Heskey and Grant that captured the headlines as they aim to follow in their fathers footsteps.
