Pre-season he looked really fit, he’s a strong runner and him and Smithy have been battling it out at right-back.“He certainly impressed in training and in pre-season. I’m pleased for him, along with some of the other young lads as well.“They’ve had that career where they’ve started in the lower leagues and then built their way up and that’s great for confidence. It definitely gives you that hunger. It did for me and you also don’t forget where you’ve come from. You’ve played in the lower leagues so to be in the Premier League, I’m sure he’ll be chomping at the bit.” last_img
