Port Vale youngster Ryan Lloyd has attracted the interest of Fulham and will spend a week's trial with the Premier League outfit at the start of May.
The highly-regarded midfielder, 17, is approaching the halfway stage of his two-year spell in Vale's youth team and his promise has not gone unnoticed by those in the top flight.
Caretaker manager Mark Grew told Vale`s official website: "It is nice to know Premier League clubs are keeping a watch on our players."
He added: "Fulham showed an expression of interest and Ryan will spend a week with them.
"We`ve had lots of interest from both Premier League and Championship clubs in several of our players.
And it`s nice to know we are going in the right direction."
