The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Ben Baker

YORK City boss Russ Wil­cox con­cedes the Min­ster­men have no chance of com­pet­ing with Ital­ian gi­ants Ju­ven­tus for the per­ma­nent sign­ing of Diego De Giro­lamo.

The 19-year-old is on loan at Bootham Cres­cent un­til the end of the sea­son but has caught the eye of some of Europe’s top sides af­ter re­ject­ing a new deal with par­ent club Sh­effield United.

And with Sun­der­land also in­ter­ested in sign­ing the Italy Un­der-20 in­ter­na­tional striker, Wil­cox ac­cepts York are out of the run­ning.

“He’s a very lev­el­headed lad for 19 who knows what he wants,” the City boss said.

“He will be open to of­fers in the sum­mer, but I don’t think York City will be able to com­pete with Ju­ven­tus for him, and it does not sur­prise me that they are in­ter­ested be­cause he’s a qual­ity player.

“My only sur­prise is that other big­ger clubs haven’t come in for him as well.”
