Big guns taking Hause interest

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has revealed that there has been interest from the top flight for young defender Kortney Hause.

The highly-rated 18-year-old has been linked with a move to Everton and his manager admits he cannot wait for the transfer window to slam shut.

"There's reports in every paper about Kortney and it's been on Sky, I wouldn't believe everything you read, but there's interest in the Premier League for Kortney Hause," he told the Bucks Free Press.

"But why wouldn't there be? He's an outstanding prospect. I believe he'll play higher one day and I believe he's got the quality to play in the Premier League.

"It's flattering, and it's great for us for one of our players to be linked there, so he's one of the ones who I talk about keeping hold of.

"If one does go out, be it Kortney or whoever, it's up to me to replace those and get the next ones through the door at the moment I'm happy that my phone's not ringing."
