WAYNE ROONEY'S son Kai has followed in his footsteps by becoming the poster boy for Puma's new JD Sports clothing range.

The 12-year-old, who plays for Manchester United's academy, was seen sporting Puma gear in his first modelling shoot last month.

And now it has been confirmed that he will front the sportswear company's latest range - with his mum Coleen sharing a pic of him on a Puma poster along with the caption "my @kairooney.10".

He signed a deal with Puma back in August and now appears to be heading down the same path as his father.

Wayne fronted Nike's sportswear for many years during his playing career.

But he will now watch his son make his way in the sport as he continues to impress at a very young age.

Kai scored 56 times for the Under-12s last season - where he is team-mates with Cristiano Ronaldo's son Cristiano Jr.

When he signed for the Red Devils, Wayne was delighted and proud of his boy.

He said: "He did have other options, other clubs to go to.

"But he decided he wants to sign for Manchester United, so it was his decision and not mine."

Kai is one of Wayne and Coleen's four boys - along with brothers Klay, nine, Kit, six, and Cass, four.

And he will have dreams of emulating his father's achievements at Old Trafford.

Rooney is United's all-time top scorer with 253 goals in 559 appearances for the club.
