Has signed a 2 year contract and will initially play for our U23 side . He was an Arsenal academy graduate before being signed for Barcelona , is 21 years old and has represented both Ireland and England at youth level . He plays mainly as a defensive midfielder ... Could he be the natural successor to Watto ??.
Hopefully he turns into a good player for us. He must have something to be signed up by the calibre of clubs he has been.
I'm not getting too excited entirely due to the fact that at 21 I'd have expected him to have played a bit more senior professional football as most of his career has been in effectively a reserve team or in the Dutch lower leagues. That tells me something isn't quite right, perhaps an attitude problem? Anyway it's pretty low risk on our part so why not...
Hopefully it can add to the feel good factor who knows he may get a look in at the squad this season depending on where we are at. Maybe feature off the bench towards the end of the season depending on if our fate has been decided?
