Newport youngster Momodou Touray on trial with Foxes

Newport County winger Momodou Touray is on a work experience trial with Leicester City.

The 18-year-old featured as a substitute for the Under-23s in their recent Premier League International Cup defeat to Sunderland.

After coming on as a second-half substitute, replacing fellow Wales youth international George Thomas, Touray missed a great chance to put the Foxes ahead when his shot rattled the post.

Touray is a Wales Under-19 international, who has spent time on loan with Merthyr Town this season. His performances for the Evo-Stik League South side have caught the eye of Leicester scouts.

While with Newport’s youth team last season, he was a key member of the side who won the EFL Youth Alliance Merit League 1 title.

Former Newport goalkeeper Rhys Davies – who was also a member of the title-winning side – joined Leicester City last summer, in a deal reported to be worth in the region of £100,000.

The goalkeeper has impressed since signing and is expected to move into the Development Squad this term.
