The 16-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy striker was born in the United States but his parents are Scottish.

McBean is on international duty at the Under-17 World Cup in Mexico but Levein's chief scout Michael Oliver has confirmed he is on the Scots' radar.

The Scotland boss told the Sunday Mail: "His mum and dad left Troon 21 years ago and Jack was born after they arrived in the USA.

"He is a player with potential, make no mistake.

"I've spoken with his dad Calum and we will get together as soon as we can to see if we can take this further.''
