Could Mansfield Town be the latest club to sign a second-generation superstar?

With the likes of Daniel Maldini, Justin Kluivert and Luca Zidane all making waves in Europe, the fourth-tier Stags have got in on the act and signed the son of a former international.

Tyrese Sinclair - the son of the former Chelsea, Leicester City and Jamaica defender Frank - has signed his first professional deal at the League Two side.

Sinclair junior, who is 18, was last season's player of the year at Mansfield's academy.

The attacking midfielder, who is said to be talented at set pieces, helped the Stags' youth team win the EFL Youth Alliance title in the 2017-18 season.

"Technically, he has outstanding potential. He can play anywhere along the attack, but he is particularly effective at number ten," Mansfield boss John Dempster told the club website.

"He can make goals, can score goals and can deal with the ball coming in at different angles and different heights.

"He is a really effective young player, who I believe has a chance of making a really good career in the game."
