No doubt its a very low % a lot of these kids are joining before their 10th birthdays and im not sure anyone expects many to end up Chelsea standard.

You would have to be naive imo not to realise football academies arent just about growing your own footballers, they need to be profitable too.
Figure rumored to be £5-£8m after add ons.

So the initial fee would likely to be £2.5-£4m

Pretty good figures for a kid who hasnt gone out on loan yet. Another talented academy kid I'll keep an eye on, i think you'll be happy with him.
I think so.

Connor Rowden who is a scribe that specialises in u/18's, u/23's and the England youth setups described him as follows:

"In U18 and U23 football, he has been better than any other ball dominant, No. 6 to come through the system in a over decade. His intelligence of how to control a game, switches of play + ball striking on his left foot, are fairly unparalleled out of a league that features as much elite young talent as any other in the world on a consistent basis. "

I wonder what happens with Neco Williams. No doubt we will have to sell him as he will want to play and will forever be behind TAA. Super talent though.
