David Moyes may look to strengthen his Manchester United side with a January swoop for Chesterfield’s highly rated midfielder, Tendayi Darikwa.

The 21-year-old has emerged as a target for the Red Devils and Moyes was at the Highbury Stadium on Saturday to watch Darikwa play in Chesterfield’s 1-1 draw at Fleetwood.

Moyes watched the progress of the Chesterfield midfielder while at Everton last term who is also under the radar of Tottenham, West Ham and Fulham.

Darikwa’s superb form at the start of the season has only heightened Moyes’ interest in the player who is valued at £1.5m, with the Spireites top of League Two following their 1-1 draw at league rivals Fleetwood on Saturday.

The club’s chief executive Paul Cook is aware of the interest from Premier League clubs for the 21-year-old, and admits he doesn’t know how long the club can hold on to their prized asset.

Cook said: ‘Tendayi is a lad we know clubs are looking at. Will someone take him soon? That’s out of my hands. But certainly as a young player there will not be many better around the country.’

Tendayi is a product of the Chesterfield youth academy and has made over 50 appearances since making his debut three years ago.
