St Johnstone striker May on Man United radar

By James Masson, 14 October 2013 2.30pm.

The sensational start striker Stevie May has made to the season has not gone un-noticed.

St Johnstone have already rebuffed offers from Peterborough United and his form, and goals, for Saints and Scotland U/21 has alerted none other than Manchester United.

The Premiership giants are “monitoring the progress of May” according to a source down south.

The source told the Tele: “Man United look at promising players all over the world and May has come to their attention.

“There is little chance of a bid being forthcoming in the immediate future but Man U will keep an eye on May.

“And with manager Davie Moyes being well aware of the Scottish scene, he will have his scouts well briefed to keep him informed of what is going on in Scotland — and that includes keeping up to date on May’s form.”

Meanwhile, Saints face Dunfermline away tonight (Monday) in an U/20 game.

Saints have lost their last two U/20 matches, away to Kilmarnock and at home to league leaders Hamilton but still remain high up the league.

Bosnia international defender Sanel Jahic and former Scotland U/21 midfield man Martin Woods are still on trial with Saints.

The Perth club are set to make a decision later this week on whether or not they will sign the pair.

Both have excellent pedigrees in the game although they are presently without a club and, therefore, haven’t had much competitive action of late.
