I have never seen him play but read many a post on him over the years I understand what you are saying.

That's a very positive assessment.
He is clearly one of the more polished of the U23s, but it's difficult to picture him in the first team based on what we see from PL2 games.
Let's hope we can develop him into a full time PL squad member next season
