West Ham boss Avram Grant spoke with the Daily Telegraph's Confidential about the promising youngster who has been with the East London club over two years ago, saying he was the type of player you just have to sit and watch and you know he will be good.
"I think you can know if you have a good eye. It's not computers; you need to have a good eye to analyse his potential, then it's our job and his job to maximise his potential," Grant said.
"He has the potential to be a good player but the big factor is whether you can maximise that potential."
As for a Hammers first team debut this season, the Israeli tactician indicated it may have already happened if the club was in a stronger position on the table.
"It's difficult with the position we are in but he might even play before the end of the season when we are fighting relegation," he added.
And as it is with every young Australian player who shows some ability gets compared with Harry Kewell, Grant at least said he was a different type of player to the former Leeds United and Liverpool winger.
"Harry was a good player, I like him, and I think Dylan has the potential to do it," Grant said."But potential is one thing and performing is another thing; he needs to perform.
"He is a different player to Harry, but he has the potential to be like him."
