Bowman, 18, who joined Boro in pre-season, has been invited to join up with the Foxes' academy set-up from Wednesday through until Friday of this week.

This comes just a few months after he trained with and played for Wigan Athletic Under-23s. The Latics are continuing to keep an eye on his progress.

Bowman said: "I have been invited into the academy to train with Leicester from Wednesday to Friday this week.

"Obviously it’s a big opportunity at one of the Premier League's top clubs, so I'm really looking forward to the next few days."

The right-sided player has also been catching the eye on the national scene with the Independent Schools FA.

He recently turned out for the National Independent Schools Under-18s against Wales Colleges at St.George's Park, scoring one of the goals in a 3-3 draw. Then he made a significant contribution from right wing-back in a 1-1 draw against England Colleges.

After these performances he has been selected to represent the ISFA once again when they host Australian Schools at Bristol in January.
