Norwich, Villa and Sheff Utd want bad boy Emre Mor, who fell out with both Dortmund and Celta Vigo


PREMIER LEAGUE new boys Norwich, Aston Villa and Sheffield United are all considering a move for Turkey bad boy Emre Mor.

Disciplinary issues have plagued Mor’s career since his days in youth football in Denmark, the country of his birth.

Mor’s current club Celta Vigo are so fed up with his attitude they are considering letting him go for free

Current club Celta Vigo are so fed up with him they would even consider letting him go for nothing – despite him having three years left on his contract.

But such is the talent of the winger, 21, that the newly-promoted top-flight trio are among the clubs wondering whether to take a punt.

Mor was once one of the hottest properties in world football.

After leaving Danish side Lyngby’s youth set-up because of issues with his attitude, he did so well at Nordsjaelland that Borussia Dortmund paid almost £9m for him in 2016 when he was still only 18.

That same summer, he played for Turkey at Euro 2016, having represented Denmark at youth level before swapping allegiance to the country of his parents.

He earned 15 caps in 2016 and 2017.

Mor fell out with then-Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel although that did not put Celta off signing him for a club record £11.7m in 2017.

But head coach Juan Carlos Unzue refused to tolerate Mor’s indiscipline, criticising him publicly and sending him home from training during a volatile first season.

Things barely improved under new Celta boss Miguel Cardoso and Mor made just 12 appearances, only five of them starts, last season.

Mor’s undoubted talent keeps earning him second chances.

Even if the Spanish club insisted on a fee, £5m or so would arguably be a risk worth taking for the Premier League trio.
