Norwich City have close eyes on a young talent who won’t stop scoring in non-League football.

Ashley Nadesan scored 42 goals last season and has grabbed another 44 this year for Horley Town, who play in the Combined Counties League Premier Division. The striker earned a League Two trial with Wimbledon, and it is reported Premier League clubs are sending scouts to see Nadesan.

When he’s not finding the back of the net, he’s working at McDonald’s to help pay the bills.

Jamie Vardy is currently second in the Premier League with 19 goals, as his form has led Leicester to the top of the table and earned himself a place on the England national team.

In 2012, Vardy was playing non-League for Fleetwood Town. His meteoric rise has sparked a new interest in clubs trying to find unknown talent in the lower tiers of English football.
