    17 year old signing his first contract

    Been quite a buzz about him

    Anyone know much about him?

    Watched a lot of him in the youth teams over the last 2 years.

    He is exceptionally talented on the ball, but also knows when to release, which is often something people his age won't have when they know they are so good on the ball. He also has a mean corner delivery on him, and has scored plenty of free kicks in the last few seasons.

    The only question mark is whether he can cope with the physicality of the adult game, but at the moment he seems to be coping well. He scored and got an assist in a behind closed doors 1st team friendly against Rotherham last week.

    When I first saw him at 15, he was the best player I had ever seen technically at that age. It was mesmerizing.

    This video shows his talent:



    Just really hope he gets his head down and works hard, because he has everything he needs to go to the very top.

    He looks brilliant in video. First I have seen him

    He seems small in stature. What position is he - I presume a winger/attacking midfield

    He's very small, yes!

    I think his best position will eventually be attacking midfield (central), but he's also playing out wide quite regularly in the youth teams at the moment. As with everyone else, he is being tried out in various positions in different games.

    Do you think we will see much of him next season?

    I note Premier League 2 for the under 23's is launching shortly.

    Be nice if we sure him in the League Cup

    It seems his new contract was signed on the basis of an unwritten agreement that he would get first team minutes this season. So I expect we'll see him in some cup squads!

    Haven't seen the full game but he certainly made a good impression amongst those who hadn't seen him before from what I'm reading.
