Manchester City set their sights on the biggest baller in the country

Manchester City are reportedly looking to follow up their sensational signing of Jack Grealish by going after the tallest outfield professional footballer in Britain. Is that Kane off then?…

Kyle Hudlin, who plays up front for Solihull Moors in the National League had some surprise guests at his match over the weekend. Scouts from Manchester City wanted to see Hudlin in action.

Hudlin, a 21-year-old striker, who stands at a staggering 6ft 9, has scored 11 goals in 38 appearances last season. Hudlin, won Solihull’s Young Player of the Season and Goal of the Season last year, was joint top goalscorer and has subsequently caught the eyes of Championship sides Cardiff City and Middlesbrough.

As per The Athletic, City is also keeping a close eye on him, and had a representative watch him during Solihull’s pre-season friendly with Notts County on Saturday.

However, he only joined Solihull in October 2020, and his contract is not due to end until June 2022. Should Hudlin’s demand continue to rise, more top-flight clubs could also be batting to sign the giant.

Could Hudlin be the next hidden gem to catch people off guard as the Pep looks to set up his team for another title defence? All eyes rightly remain on the Kane situation but you never know how good those smaller bits of business can be.
