Norwich City are eyeing up a move for Newport County defender Jay Foulston, as reported by the South Wales Argus.

The 16-year-old made his Newport debut in the League Cup against Southend United, coming on as a second half substitute at the start of August.

He has reportedly spent a bit of time training at the Norwich camp, and the Canaries have now shown interest in the youngster.

Foulston could become another successful graduate from Newport County’s academy, following Rhys Davies, who recently joined former Premier League champions Leicester City.

Newport County, who ply their trade in League Two, have also, in the past, sold Regan Poole to Manchester United, Lee Evans and Aaron Collins to Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Foulston hoping to follow in their footsteps and attempt to make it at the highest level.

Norwich have had a fairly poor start to the new campaign, and sit 22nd after five matches.
