Furthermore, Scottish giants Celtic are thought to be keeping tabs on Feeney as well and it will be interesting to see who ends up signing the youngster.

SL View: Impressive future prospect
Feeney is rated highly by the League One club and he has a big future ahead of him.
It remains to be seen whether his suitors can snap him up this summer for a reasonable price and nurture him into a first-team star over the next few seasons.
The report from Daily Mail adds that Celtic could have an advantage in the transfer chase because the cross border compensation fees are significantly lower for youngsters.
That said, the likes of Leeds, Leicester and Villa have the financial resources to pay a higher price and the chance to move to a Premier League club might be more tempting for the youngster.
All four clubs have an impressive track record of developing young players and they could help Feeney achieve his potential.
