Shamrock Rovers teenager Kevin Zefi has agreed a deal to join Inter Milan in the coming weeks.

Zefi will follow in the footsteps of Liam Brady and Robbie Keane by signing for the Serie A giants.

The 15-year-old became the youngest scorer in League of Ireland history when he found the net playing for Shamrock Rovers II against Longford Town in September.

Zefi, who joined Rovers from St Kevin's Boys has been scouted by some of Europe's biggest clubs after impressing for the Republic of Ireland under 15s.

Manchester United, Manchester City, PSV Eindhoven and Juventus were among the clubs tracking the young Dubliner, who turns 16 next month.

Zefi cannot turn professional until he is 16 so Rovers won’t receive a transfer fee but the League of Ireland champions and St Kevin’s are entitled to receive compensation from Inter under Fifa's training and development laws.

Zefi featured 11 times for Shamrock Rovers II in second half of the First Division last season and can play anywhere across the forward line.

He also really impressed in Jason Donohue's under 15s side and scored two goals in a 3-1 win over England in December 2019.
