A recent report has linked Premier League sides Brighton and Burnley with a move for Hamilton youngster Jamie Hamilton (Daily Mail).
The Accies defender is a highly thought of youth prospect at the Fountain of Youth Stadium. Despite only being 17-years-old, he has already faced off against some of the SPFL’s best.
There’s now big name links with him from down south as a result of his impressive development.
Brighton and Burnley may need seven figures for Hamilton
The report states that Hamilton will be looking for £1.5 million off anyone who formalises interest in the teenager. Aston Villa, Everton and Wolves are other teams reportedly monitoring his progress.
It’s Burnley and Brighton though who are thought to be thinking about formalised bids. There are links established between Hamilton and the two EPL sides.
Will Collar, formerly of Brighton, joined Accies from the Seagulls recently whilst Accies manager Brian Rice and Turf Moor boss Sean Dyche are good friends from their playing days.
Hamilton is attracting plenty of interest it seems and the vultures are starting to circle for his signature.
