York City may end up losing youth team star Chris Hogg to Premiership champions Manchester United.

England Under-15 defender Hogg, who has been on the Bootham Crescent books for three years, is currently on trial at Old Trafford.

The outcome of his trial should be known within the next few weeks.

Should Middlesbrough-born Hogg join for the Red Devils, it could at least mean City receiving compensation.

"We've had dealings with Manchester United in the past and everything has been very agreeable. We have a good relationship with them and that won't change," said Paul Stancliffe, head of youth development at Bootham Crescent.

Added Stancliffe: "It's a great opportunity for Chris. He's done well and has become a decent player with a good chance of progressing further. But we're hoping he will still sign for York City and make the grade with us."

Meanwhile, Hogg was set to join up with the England set-up tomorrow ahead of Friday's Victory Shield wooden spoon clash with Scotland at Chester's Deva Stadium (kick-off 7.30pm).

Hogg, who missed out on the second Shield match against Wales after making his debut against tournament winners Northern Ireland, captains City's under-16s side but is still eligible to play internationally at under-15s level.
