Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey has put Chelsea and other Premier League teams on alert by teaming up with English management company Unique Sports Management.

Chelsea right-back Reece James is also signed to the management company.

The Jamaica winger has scored nine goals and set up seven more in just 19 appearances for Leverkusen, inspiring his club to second place in the Bundesliga and top spot in their Europa League group to reach the knockout stages.

Bailey has also been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City in the past, while Leeds had an offer for him rejected in the summer.

USM’s Mike Appiason said: “Leon is a fantastic player with an even better story.

“He is having a fantastic season so far as are Leverkusen. No doubt he will have many takers but for now his focus remains solely on helping Leverkusen finish the season as strongly as possible.”

Bailey’s father Craig Butler said: “Collaborations are the order of the day to maximise opportunities. Having an honest, hardworking and experienced team in England is key to our long-term plan for Leon and the plethora of super-talented players we have coming through the Phoenix All Stars Football Academy from all over the Caribbean so we chose to partner with Mike and his team at USM.”
