    Looks a really promising young talent this lad. Certainly draws a few fouls from the opposition! Looks like he wants to get on the ball and make things happen which is what the first team is crying out for.

    Not that I'm saying promote him to the first team just looks like one to watch.

    He got pro deal at 17 so clearly we rate him quite highly as well

    Looks a very naturally gifted player. What went wrong for him at Arsenal & Fulham?

    Think from the clips I've seen he looks a real talent but seems to give the ball away a lot. Now that's partly because he's trying to make things happen but sometimes he seems quite sloppy. Not that I'm having a go at him as he looks a exciting talent but maybe that's why it didn't work out.

    Was our best player last night against Brighton, trying to create chances and also running at the defence

    Really like the look of this lad. He looks at ease on the ball and has really nice variety to his game. He can go past people with skill or pace but he can also pick out a pass or put his foot on the ball and wait for options to open up.

    Good read that.

    He has had the reputation of being one of our most talented youngsters alongside guys like Gomes and Chong. I haven’t seen much of him but he’s got good technical ability and you’d think at 19 he shouldn’t be far away from a look in towards the first team. But his injury stunted his progress so he may have to do it for the U23’s for a little while before he makes a step up.

    Looks very good, watched a few of the U18's last year, him and Gomes seem to link up very well
