A DEAL that could be worth a considerable six-figure sum has seen Luton starlet Michael Cain sign for Premier League hopefuls Leicester City, writes Mark Wood.

The 16-year-old midfielder last night completed his move to the Championship outfit for a sizable five-figure fee and will rise higher if he achieves significant career milestones, including becoming a Premier League footballer with the Foxes and achieving senior international recognition.

The Hatters have also secured a significant sell-on clause to cover future transfers.

Head of youth Gregg Broughton said: “He is in the process of signing for Leicester City and they’ve paid a significant amount of money to the club for Michael.

“The whole deal is not far short of the Cauley Woodrow one.”
