Manchester United and Tottenham are reportedly the favourites to snap up League One starlet Rico Henry during the January transfer window, according to the Walsall Advertiser.

The Premier League duo, who sit sixth and fourth in the league standings respectively, have been scouting the highly-rated Walsall full-back throughout the 2015-16 campaign.

The 18-year-old, who is an England Under-19 international, has scored twice in 23 appearances in all competitions for the third-tier promotion contenders this season.

Henry, who joined the Saddlers when he was just 11-years-old, is also thought to have been scouted by fellow English top-flight rivals Arsenal, Leicester City, Liverpool and Watford this term.
