It’s no surprise that Sheffield United’s latest young graduate is catching the eye of some of European football’s biggest clubs.

Jebbison scored the only goal of the game on Sunday as United registered a rare win after an impressive display off the bench against Crystal Palace convinced Paul Heckingbottom to through the 17-year-old in from the start at Goodison Park.

The goal and the performance went some way towards explaining why teams from the Bundesliga and the top Premier League clubs are eeping a watchful eye on the Canada-born striker.

Reports over the weekend suggest that Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are keeping an eye on the progress of Jebbison, with quite a number of young players who began their careers in England making the journey to develop their careers in Germany.

But the Premier League’s big guns are also interested with 90min reporting that Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton have Jebbison in their sights.

United interim boss Paul Heckingbottom hailed the maturity of the teenager after his goalscoring heroics at Goodison Park, showing just why so many clubs would be willing to snap up a player who earlier this season was on loan at Chorley.

“The most impressive thing about Daniel, and indeed that performance he’s just put in, is the fact that he finished the chance when it came along. Because, for people in his position, there is nothing more important that doing that,” he told The Star.
