Hibs striker Ethan Laidlaw to land Man Utd trial

Last updated : 11 April 2021 By Steve Forbes

Young Hibs striker Ethan Laidlaw has today been linked with English giants Manchester United.

The 16-year-old, who was on the bench for the Hibees at Ibrox today, has already had a trial with English Premiership side Leeds United, but he now looks to be heading down to spend time with the Old Trafford club for a week.

According to Leah Smith of @strettynews on twitter, no date has been set-up yet, but Laidlaw will definately head south at one point.

Laidlaw has only recently landed his first professional contract with Hibs, and it would take six-figure fee to get him out of it, if United like wht they see.

Leeds were apparently told the fee would be £250,000 when he headed down to Their Thorpe Arch training facility last month.

Another huge oppertunity for the lad.

He has been attracting a lot of interest, which could see him land a deam move.

It's a pity club's are coming and taking our talent before they get anywhere near the first team nowadays.
