Is ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright set to turn a professional footballer? He has already had a few offers, according to reports.

Fans of Mark saw him showcasing his talent on the pitch last weekend for Soccer Aid 2016. He was in the lineup for the England team, and actually bagged himself 'Man of the Match' after scoring the opening goal of the game.

Mark helped to secure his side's 3-2 win, and now, it seems he could be within a chance of playing in the Premier League...

According to The Sun, Mark has been approached by both Jose Mourinho (Manchester United's new manager) and Sam Allardyce who manages Sunderland.

Sam was Mark's manager for Soccer Aid, and was assisted by Jose.

While Sam is said to have given Mark a "serious offer" to join his Sunderland side, Jose has asked Mark to join him and the Manchester United team at their training ground in July for a two-week trial.

A source told the paper: "Mark has always fancied himself as a decent footballer, but he didn't expect this amount of interest after Soccer Aid. Jose came up to him after the game and asked him if he was free to head up to United's training ground to see how he gets on among some professionals."

They added that Mark is "very keen" to trial.

Reveal has contacted a rep for Mark.

News of Mark's footballing offers come after he recently gushed over wife Michelle Keegan, following his Soccer Aid success.

Michelle had been in the stands cheering on her husband, along with Mark's family - including his sister Jessica Wright. She made sure to congratulate her man in the dressing room after the game, prompting Mark to share a picture of himself and Michelle to Instagram.

He told fans: "Man of the match, I scored, england won and this one joined us in the dressing room after.... Couldn't wish for a better prize waiting for me xxx."

Mark added: "OH WHAT A NIGHT !! One I will never forget."

Mark and Michelle recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary. The couple married on 24 May 2015 at St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmonds.
