Stoke have handed a trial to promising 17-year-old Danish winger Frederik Pedersen, the Daily Mail have reported.

The teenager, who currently plays for FK Viborg, will make his first appearance in a youth team friendly against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Pedersen, a versatile attacking youngster, is capable of playing on either side and can also fill in behind the striker.


He will be assessed by Stoke's staff over the coming weeks, before a decision is made over a potential permanent move.

The highly-rated prospect is the son of Ralph Pedersen, Viborg's assistant coach, and he has admitted the trial will be a "fascinating experience".

"It's a fascinating experience he gets," he told Tidligere Viborg. "He comes over and tries to see how it is in a really big club.

"My wife and I have talked to Frederik that he should take it as an experience. He comes over and sees a big and fat club.

"But they bring a lot of players into trial training. So that is not because we are now suddenly starting to make plans.

"Now he is allowed to measure up with some really talented players and see how it happens on the other side of the channel. He can then use that as motivation to get even better."
