Premier League sides Crystal Palace and Swansea City are embroiled in a tug-of-war for promising young Scottish winger Jai Quitongo, according to The Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old wideman is on the books of Greenock Morton and has broken into the west coast club’s first-team squad after time at both Hamilton Accademical and Aberdeen’s youth ranks.

Quitongo has starred this season for the Scottish Championship side, starting all eight games and scoring once.

The teenager’s impressive performances have led to Doncaster Rovers having a £100,000 offer rejected for him, but it appears that the Premier League big boys are starting to take an interest.

Palace put a lot of credence in enterprising wide play under Alan Pardew and as such Quitongo’s direct style would suit the London club.

Swansea meanwhile have been keeping a close eye on the Scottish market and have young Scots Jay Fulton, Stephen Kingsley and Oliver McBurnie in their first-team squad.

It appears only a matter of time before Quitongo ends up moving south of the border, with Premier League interest and money too good for the player and Greenock to turn down.
