Newcastle United signed up Yasin Ben El-Mhanni for free after plucking him from non-league but he could leave the north east on loan with a host of clubs interested, Goal understands.
Several clubs in the Championship have enquired about a loan move for El-Mhanni, who has been compared to Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez, as well as the Turkish club Sivisspor and Dutch club FC Twente.
Newcastle have an option to extend El-Mhanni's deal for another season but his contract only has a year left on it, alerting the likes of Everton, Brighton and Leicester City to watch his progress in case he becomes available for a cut-price fee. Napoli are also watching his situation ahead of future renewal talks.
Despite only playing in the lower levels of the English game, the 21-year-old earned fame through his YouTube skill videos and that earned him body double work for Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo in adverts.
The trickster was playing in at non-league clubs Lewes and Farnborough before going on trial at Chelsea and Newcastle, with the latter ultimately choosing to sign him up.
El-Mhanni will weigh up several options to leave Newcastle on loan before transfer deadline day.
