Sky Sports understands teenage sensation Dele-Bashiru is attracting the interest of the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool as they look to lure the 14-year-old away from the Etihad Stadium.

Dele-Bashiru is regarded as one of the most promising youngsters in the country after catching the eye in City's youth sides and most of the Premier League's big guns are monitoring his situation at City

City are desperate to keep hold of the teenage wonderkid and are thought to be pulling out all the stops to fend off the growing interest in the youngster.

The player's father Bandele Bashiru has revealed he has been contacted by a number of clubs about his son, but that the teenager is in no rush to make a decision on his long-term future.

"I have been contacted by a number of clubs and agents to ask about my son's situation at Manchester City," said Dele-Bashiru Snr.

"It is flattering that other clubs are interested in Tom, but we are no rush to make a decision on his future as it is important we make the right decision so that he can continue his development."
