The youngster has been playing on-loan with Blackpool this season.

Holloway said: “I certainly know what he’s good at.

“When he realises what he has got and how best to show it off – I think he’ll be a terrific footballer. He’s still learning because he’s only 18 but a large amount of his game is very good.

"He’s a wonderful talent to watch and I’m sure if he chooses to use it to its maximum he could have a fantastic career.”
