And highly rated 17-year-old striker Solanke is poised to follow suit.

"Dominic Solanke will train with the Vitesse first-team from Tuesday," Vitesse announced on Tuesday. "The attacker has a big name as goal scorer and has played for the England national team [at] Under-16, U17 and U18 [levels].

"The club and player hope to reach an agreement."
