John Caulfield, Cork City manager, had this to say: "Everyone knows who has watched him; Arsenal have, Hull have, we’ve realised that Manchester United have watched him, Tottenham.

"Do I think that he’ll be gone across the channel in the next couple of weeks? I believe that he will."

The Cork born player is highly versatile and can play right-back and also at centre-back or in central midfield.

Lenihan has been dubbed by some as 'the next Seamus Coleman', having represented the Republic of Ireland from schoolboy level to Under-21.

Crystal Palace are understood to have had an initial offer of £130,000 rejected with Hull City also discussing a possible bid for the youngster.
