He has enjoyed a strong breakthrough into the first team so far this term, starting two games and coming off the bench in a further nine. He has yet to score, but has one assist already as well as having a pretty nifty 81% pass success rate.
Already a seasoned veteran on the youth international stage, he has made 25 appearances for an array of England’s young guns, including scoring four goals in four showings for the Under-19s throughout 2014.
