EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke

Aston Villa and Fulham are tracking in-form non-league striker Callum Kealy, Football Insider sources understand.

Former Brighton youngster Kealy is currently plying his trade in the Bostik Premier League with the Metropolitan Police.

The 19-year-old came through the ranks at Brighton, but never broke into the first-team picture at the Amex Stadium.

The Australian was highly-rated at Brighton, impressing for the club’s academy, but he was unable to establish himself in Chris Hughton’s plans.

Kealy left Brighton in the summer of 2016 to join local side Lewes in the Isthmian League South Division

However, after one year at Lewes he left the club in the summer to make the move to the Metropolitan Police.

Kealy has been earning rave reviews with the Met since his arrival at the club, scoring four goals in his last eight games.

The striker’s performances have not gone unnoticed among clubs higher up the football pyramid and Championship duo Villa and Fulham are actively monitoring his situation as they keep tabs on his progress.
