Meet the 17-year-old who supplies designer clothes to the stars

Most 17-year-olds are getting on with sixth form or working extra shifts down the local pub to get themselves some extra pocket money.
But not college student Sam Morgan.
He is affectionately known by Paul Pogba as 'The Plug' and is the boy who supplies the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kevin De Bruyne with their latest threads.

The teenager is set to reveal all about how he has become the most sought-after supplier of limited edition clothing for the stars of world football, before a text message from an England international and Premier League winner sends him off track.
'Kyle Walker's just text me. Can I just answer this real quickly?', he asks on the Premier League Show .
It all started by selling to Arsenal youngster Cohen Bramall, who sent him to the Willock brothers, Joe and Chris, and then Reiss Nelson.
But he identifies Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters as his 'breakthrough', who got him in touch with Son Heung-min, Harry Winks and ultimately Dele Alli 
'From Dele Alli I've been introduced to multiple England people', he explains.
'It just snowballs from one player, to another player, to another player... as long as you're providing a good service that's it, you're set.'
Even the video game sensation Fortnite has provided Morgan custom, with Manchester City star De Bruyne unintentionally becoming a client
His whirlwind journey to the top saw him help the French team celebrate their World Cup success with Gucci jackets and vintage glasses. 
He continues: 'Two days before the World Cup final I got a FaceTime from Paul Pogba, who I'd never spoken to before, who was on Benjamin Mendy's phone, and he was just saying: "Are you the plug?"
'He said: 'You're the one that Benjy's been telling me about. I've been trying to connect with you for a long time.' I was sitting there thinking 'I'm the one who should be trying to connect to you not you connecting to me.'
'Two days after the World Cup final I got the Eurostar to Paris, we had multiple Gucci jackets, multiple vintage glasses , so I got off the train straight to the team hotel where everyone had stayed the night before because they were with the president.

'I just rocked up there, and delivered everything to Paul and just chilled.
Among his clients is Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who came across him after a conversation with strike-partner Alexandre Lacazette.
Lacazette sent him to 'this little kid' to sort out some new clothes.   
He adds: 'I just checked my phone, had a follow from Aubameyang. One hour later I messaged Pierre saying "Hey bro, just seen the follow, if you need any bits just let me know" and within 20 minutes of that message Pierre messaged me back. 'Hey I've just heard about you from Alex. I'm going to need some clothes soon. Let me know what you've got!"
'I got his number, sent him some photos over WhatsApp and the day after I was with him.'
