Manchester City Are Interested In The Tallest Outfield Professional Player In Britain

Manchester City are interested in the tallest outfield professional footballer in Britain and watched him in action over the weekend.

The Premier League champions are pushing hard to sign England captain Harry Kane from Spurs and are reportedly preparing a record bid.

But surprisingly, City are monitoring the situation of Kyle Hudlin, who plays for Solihull Moors in the National League.

Hudlin, a 21-year-old striker, stands at 6ft 9 and scored 11 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions last season.

He made the step up from Solihull United in the Midland League Division Two, step 7 in the English football pyramid, and has courted interest from Championship sides Cardiff City and Middlesbrough.

As per The Athletic, City are also keeping tabs and had someone watch him during Solihull's pre-season friendly with Notts County on Saturday.

They had previously studied video footage of Hudlin before deciding to take a closer look.

He only joined his current club in October 2020 and is contracted until June 2022. City's interest is expected to see more clubs join the race for his signature.

A target man and physical presence, Hudlin would not appear to be your typical Pep Guardiola striker.

However, it's said the club are scouting potential young unknown talent that they would then loan out and develop.

Any move upwards would continue a quite remarkable rise for Hudlin, who won Solhull's Young Player of the Season, Joint Top Goalscorer and Goal of the Season awards last season.

Hudlin has been tipped to play in the EFL very soon and has even talked about having aspirations of playing in the Champions League one day.

When it comes to Non-League success stories, there's no denying that the best and most famous is the incredible journey of Leicester City Jamie Vardy, whose tale is to be told in a film.
