A look at the stories in Sunday’s newspapers involving the area’s clubs…

Brentford are keen on Austria Under-21 international winger Husein Balic, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The newspaper say the Bees and Southampton want Balic and that there has also been interest from Celtic.

He plays for Austrian side LASK Linz and is supposedly rated at £2.8m.

Nicknamed ‘The Sprinter’, Balic is said to be one of the fastest players in world football and has apparently been clocked running 20 metres in just 2.75 seconds.

Meanwhile, a number of Sunday newspapers report that Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi has flouted Covid-19 lockdown rules for the second time.

Photographs have emerged of the England international on a night out with his Chelsea team-mate Fikayko Tomori.
