You may remember a month or so ago that we first reported news of Norwich City interest in non-league Horley Town striker, Ashley Nadesan.
The rise of Jamie Vardy to the Premier League and also the England team from humble beginnings in non-league has prompted professional football clubs to take more of an interest in those players outside the four leagues and Norwich are no different.
City have reportedly sent scouts to watch the 22 year old and have seen him score some of the 50 goals he has grabbed for Horley this season. Nadesan currently works as a trainer for McDonalds but seems set to make the step up to professional football in the very near future.
The Daily Mail are reporting that several clubs are interested as well as Norwich and suggest that Brighton, Colchester and Crawley are all keen, while yesterday Millwall offered the lad a trial.
Horley Town manager Anthony Jupp told the Crawley News: ‘It’s an exciting time for him and we are going to do whatever we can to help him out. ‘If he needs permission to talk to a club or go on a trial then that’s fine because we want what is best for him.’
‘He has been with us for four years now, one with the youth team and three with the first team, and each season he has improved but we know there is a ceiling on that. ‘He needs to make the step up now and get some professional, full-time training and really test himself. Everyone at Horley Town is really excited for Ashley and looking forward to seeing where he ends up.’
