Juventus are believed to have deployed scouts to watch Heart of Midlothian defender Jordan McGhee.

The 17-year-old was under the watchful eye of Juventus scout Javier Ribalta during Hearts’ 1-0 win in the League Cup fixture with Edinburgh rivals Hibernian.

According to the Daily Express, Ribalta watched McGhee with the youngster being steady rather than spectacular.

However, a formal offer is considered a long way off, though Juventus will have competition for his signature as several English Championship clubs are also interested in the player.

The Scottish under-21 international can be deployed at either left-back or centre-back, and has played in both positions in his seven appearances for Hearts this season.
