Any of the youth watchers know much about Kane Taylor. Highly rated apparently but Man City have nicked him off us and meant to be agreeing compensation.

I've only just seen this but this is depressing. We should keep our best young players.

Money talks. Just ask Sturridge and his agent.

From the Mail - who knows how accurate this is but 6'4 at 16 is a bit scary. Let's hope he becomes as projected

Quote
Aston Villa have beaten a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, to secure Nigerian defender Iffy Udanoh, according to reports from his homeland. The 16-year-old is highly rated in Nigeria and is expected to be called up to the U17 side in the coming days. He also holds an American passport and is eligible to play for England.
 
Along with Liverpool - West Ham and Wolves both gave a trial to the 6ft4 defender who has been likened to Virgil van Dijk.  In total, it is claimed eight Premier League clubs were keen on Udanoh, before he signed with Villa. He was previously playing for non-league, London based side Erith & Belvedere before making the switch to Villa's youth set up. Udanoh will be part of the U18 side on B6 as he looks to impress on his initial deal.

Was at the U23 match yesterday against Norwich .Two points dropped really. Cameron Archer scored but missed two good chances ,Jack Clarke also missed a great chance while Tyreik Wright had a cracking effort hit the bar .Was good to see Nyland make his return

Interesting that Nyland played then. I wonder if there's a deal for the Croatian lad?

Good to read that we were the preferred destination for a young player that is highly thought of. With how these owners (and therefore downwards) place such an emphasis on young players, I really expect our youth teams to be amongst the best over the coming years.

One player who really impressed me on Saturday was  the lad Mungo Bridge,he looks good and i can see why several of the top clubs were trying to sign him a few months back .Dominic Revan who Deano called into the first team squad a few times last season also impressed
