We could be seeing another Irish midfielder in the Premier League soon if reports are to be believed linking a number of top flight clubs with a move for a player who is yet to make their international debut.
Brentford's Alan Judge has been in fantastic form as he has scored an impressive six goals with a further four assists in the Championship already this season, and the Evening Standard are claiming that a number of Premier League clubs have sent scouts to watch him with a view to making a move:
Leicester have watched Judge, who can play as an attacking midfielder and can also operate deeper, as have Swansea and Bournemouth.
Judge’s contract at Griffin Park expires at the end of next season.
He and the club begun talks over a new deal before the start of the campaign but it is understood these have now been shelved.
Judge has been a member of a number of Martin O'Neill's Ireland squads but is yet to make his full international debut as of yet. The Dubliner has represented Ireland at U18, U19, U21, and U23 level, and if he keeps his impressive form going in the coming months it will be a matter of time before he earns his first cap.
Being linked with the likes of Swansea and Leicester can only be good for him, so let's keep an eye on how he and Brentford get on for the remainder of the season.
