The youngster who has come through the ranks at the Blades academy has had plenty of paper talk surrounding himself with a move to the top flight. Man City, Aston Villa and Arsenal are some of the big named clubs who have been allegedly circling the 20 year old.

His Gaffer Kevin Blackwell said: "As far as I am concerned it is just speculation because I have heard nothing official. There is no question that he could play at a higher level eventually but newspapers have a habit of raking up stories that are not necessarily true."

He collected the Man of The Match Award against Watford earlier in the season and at the time said: "It is amazing to play in front of more than 24,000 at Bramall Lane. This is what I wanted, to play in the first team and coming from Sheffield and being a Blade makes it even more special."
