Aston Villa are among the clubs interested in Northampton’s teenage striker prospect Caleb Chukwuemeka.

Villa already have Chukwuemeka’s highly-rated brother, England under-17 midfielder Carney, on their books, and are keen to reunite the pair.

Chukwuemeka senior, 18, is attracting interest after a prolific campaign for Northampton’s under-18s last season when he scored 16 goals and also recorded 14 assists before the youth football season was curtailed.
