Prem eyes on Rovers starlet

A host of Premier League clubs are tracking Blackburn Rovers starlet Hyuga Tanner, Sky Sports understands.

The 16-year-old has been earning rave reviews for Blackburn this season and he is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at Ewood Park.

Tanner has been at Blackburn for the last two years after arriving from Australia and he has represented Australia at youth level.

The skilful midfielder has broken into the Blackburn Under 21s side this season and is tipped to be pushing for a place in Gary Bowyer's first-team squad in the near future.

Tanner's emergence has not gone unnoticed among clubs higher up the football pyramid with several Premier League sides monitoring his situation at Ewood Park.
