6ft 9in Solihul Moors striker Kyle Hudlin is reportedly attracting interest from Championship and League One clubs.

The 20-year-old is the tallest professional outfield player in Britain and two inches taller than former England international Peter Crouch.

Hudlin netted 10 goals in all competitions for Solihull last season and Barnsley, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday are all eyeing a move for the forward, according to reports.

He has enjoyed a remarkable rise, having begun the 2019-20 season at Sunday League side Boldmere Falcons.

Hudlin then joined Solihull United in March last year and, after bagging a hat-trick in just his second appearance, he came on the radar of National League side Solihull Moors.

He put pen to paper on a two-year professional deal with the club back in October and he harbours aspirations of playing in the Champions League one day.

Speaking to the Sun back in January, Hudlin said: "I am enjoying life at Solihull right now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have aspirations in England and in the Champions League.

"I don’t want to run before I can walk and I understand how high the jump is to that level, but I want to make that jump.

"If all goes well I will be playing in the EFL soon, possibly even with Solihull next season.

"Everything that has happened so far, it is a dream. Scoring in the FA Cup, as a kid they are things you have on your bucket list, and I have done that.

"I couldn’t have written a better script. Signing this contract was sent by God. It has been a blessing."
