The teen is set to join Crawley, according to the club he’s just left.

The youngster plundered 21 goals by Christmas for Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South club Hendon, with 17 of them coming in league action.

But Hendon released a statement earlier today confirming the 19-year-old frontman had departed, having turned down a contract.
