The move allegedly comes after Littler followed in Manchester City star Jack Grealish’s tracks by signing a contract with Boohoo.

Littler has become a sensation in the world of darts with an astonishing rise in recent months.

It started at the PDC World Championship this year where he reached the final – the youngest person to ever do so at the age of 16 – before losing to Luke Humphries.

As a result, the youngster earned a whopping £200,000 for his heroics at Alexandra Palace and was handed a spot in this season’s Premier League of Darts, playing former world champions including Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price.

His manager recently revealed how his star client must be looked after carefully to avoid burnout.

Martin Foulds of ZXF Sports Management, told the BBC: “He’s pretty much in every TV event for the rest of the year without throwing another dart.

“There’s no off-season in darts. You’ve got to travel to these events – you don’t just time-warp and you’re in Belfast, Graz, Munich, Rotterdam.

“It’s unsustainable for any player to travel and play all of those events.

“When you’re playing in the Premier League especially, travelling can take its toll on anybody.

“He’s still a teenager, still 17 – if he wasn’t playing darts, he’d be doing an apprenticeship or still be in school.

“So there are duties of care we have to follow to look after Luke as best as we can.

“The other day he had to come in, do some paperwork, some shirt signings.

“He’s not at the darts but he’s still watching it – he just loves the game.”

Littler is next in action in Belfast on Thursday when he faces Humphries in the Premier League.
