Manchester City have handed trials to 16-year-old duo Marco Larsen and Mads Pedersen.

The FC Midtjylland youngsters are believed to have caught the attention of City's scouts whilst representing the Denmark U16 national team in matches against Republic of Ireland, Portugal and Spain.

City have since requested permission to run the rule over the promising teenagers at their Platt Lane academy, as the club seek to continue their fine record in youth development.

"Manchester City have contacted us because they want to see the two players," FC Midtjylland youth coach Svend Graversen told Danish daily BT.

"We assume that they caught their attention when they played for the U16 national team."
