Transfer Rumour: Rising Hearts Star On Norwich's Radar

Norwich City are reportedly on of a number of Premier League clubs interested in young left-back Aaron Hickey, after the 17-year-old's Scottish Premiership emergence for Hearts.

The Scottish Sun claim Norwich, Liverpool, Arsenal, Newcastle and Southampton all had representatives at the Edinburgh club's 1-1 home draw with Rangers on Sunday.

Hickey has started seven of Hearts' eight league games so far this season, scoring a late derby day winner at Hibernian last month, and has also been a key part of reaching the Sottish League Cup semi-finals.

That's all before the Scotland Under-17 international turns 18 in January, having made three senior appearances at the end of last season - including all of a 2-1 loss to Celtic in the Scottish FA Cup final.

Rangers and Manchester City have also previously been reported as clubs who are tracking Hickey, who is under contract until 2021, with negotiations for a new deal already under way.

Hickey was on the books at Hearts as a youngster but joined Celtic's academy, with the Scottish champions inserting a 30 percent sell-on clause in the deal which allowed the full-back to return to Tynecastle.

Former Scotland winger John Robertson, who won two European Cups with Nottingham Forest, was asked about Hickey during BT Sport's coverage of Sunday's game.

"He's still a young lad and we shouldn't get too excited, but he's a real talent," said the Scot.

"He's two footed and can play quite comfortably at right-back.. He's a humble and hard working lad with a massive, massive future."
