Speaking on Sky Sports, Pennant said: “He’s a fantastic player. He reminds me of a young Steven Gerrard.

“He throws himself about, he can get up and down the pitch, he can score goals and assist goals, he’s got trickery. He’s a fantastic young player.

“The Championship is a very, very strong, demanding and physical league, and he’s throwing his body about; he’s strong and he’s only going to get stronger.

“I’m surprised there are not more teams interested in him than just Chelsea and Manchester United because he is a really special talent.”
