Matlock Town’s youngest-ever first-teamer, Zak Brunt could be on for a high profile move after attracting the attention of former Premier League champions Leicester City.

Shortly after the move of Max Hunt to Derby, Brunt could be following in the centre-back’s footsteps to a professional club. The 16-year-old academy Under-16’s captain has only been with the Gladiators for four months, but in that short time he has caught the eye of Leicester City and has a trial with the Foxes commencing today.

Matlock Town’s Development Manager, Justin Tellus was delighted for Brunt and praised the footballing ability which he possesses:

“Zak is a special talent and has been superb within our academy system this season. He is an exceptional talent on the ball and we have worked closely with him on his off the ball game, which has improved significantly.

“I don’t doubt that Zac will go on to have a good career in football, and there will always be interest from various professional clubs surrounding such a talented young player. I and everyone at the club wishes Zak all the best during his trial with the Foxes.”
