Former youngster could move for £1m

Former youngster could move for £1m

Former York City youth-team winger Jamie Hopcutt could be on the move for in excess of £1m.

Hopcutt has continued to impress while playing for Ostersund and helped them win the Swedish Cup final only last month. That means a Europa League place next season.

The 24-year-old actually missed the whole of their previous campaign due to a broken leg, but has already scored four goals in four games this time around.

That has raised his overall tally to a very impressive 37 goals in 111 appearances since joining Ostersund five years ago. His record hasn't gone unnoticed in England and, according to HITC, several Championship clubs are understood to be monitoring his progress.

Despite currently having two years remaining on his contract, York-born Hopcutt could move on for around €1.25million (£1.07m).

Hopcutt was previously a member of a York City under-18s side that finished runners-up to Hull City in the Football League Youth Alliance's North-East Conference.

But he then drifted into non-League football with Ossett Town and Tadcaster Albion after being released by Gary Mills during his first spell at Bootham Crescent.

That was until former York left-back Graham Potter gave him an opportunity at Ostersunds, where he has since switched into a more central attacking role.
