The players will join the club on a full-time basis in July after leaving school. Johnny Emerson – who has already played for the club’s Under-23 side – has signed up along with Lewis Miley, younger brother of Jamie.

Twins Rory and Harry Powell, Josh Donaldson, Dylan Charlton, Scott Bailey, Darren Palmer and Carter Milmore are also joining the club’s academy.

A club statement read: “Academy director Steve Harper welcomes the new under-17 scholars and looks forward to working with them and helping them develop over the next two years.”

Meanwhile, the Gazette reported this week that the club is tracking Southampton forward Tyler Dibling. The 16-year-old – who was included in the club’s first-team squad for a game against Brentford in May – impressed playing against United's academy teams last season. Dibling scored a first-half hat-trick against Newcastle’s Under-23s in April.
