    Everton youth player. Currently outscoring Mason Greenwood and everyone else in the U18 Premier League by a considerable margin.

    Whats the view on him for those who follow the youth teams in England? The next Rooney?

    From what I've heard he's a very big lad that shouldn't really be playing at that level. He's from Oldham and was at City. He hasn't played for England and I don't think he's as highly rated as his scoring record would suggest.

    It will be interesting to see if his career progresses.

    They've got some very good players coming through and none of them have even made an appearance on the bench for Everton this season. Going to be a problem for their development.

    Apparently if you let him into pool and remove the pool-ladder he'll keep swimming around the pool until he dies.

    He’s now scored 27 goals in 17 u18 games and 41 in 33 in all comps.

    It’s curious that such a prolific scorer who is so physically large is being kept at that level.

    Hes taking his chances, but he wouldnt be getting those chances against physically similar players, he is literally just running through players.

    I wonder if it's just because he's big and physically too much for the young defenders he's coming up against. If so, that advantage will be largely neutralised once in professional level footie.

    He's not that good. Got a trial at us after leaving City and we didn't take him in.

    Clearly no good him still playing u18 football when he's already 18 and knocking that many goals in, why not test him at u23 football at least?
