It seems he's been deployed mostly as a right back for Preston. He's never been the quickest, so it's a bit of a strange one... I don't think he will have a future with us in that position, but it can be good for his overall development.
Yeah, I wonder what's up with that. He did play the last 4 games as a center-back according to Transfermarkt (in a 3 men backline) but it's mostly been RWB this season as well as last season. I guess it can't really do him any bad in terms of becoming better with the ball at his feet as well as passing the ball but I also guess there is some things beyond my understanding that are going on in terms of our staff's vision for him
Could be as simple as he isn't bulky enough to be a CB (YET), especially in a physical league like the championship.He has the ability to play the games but maybe the coaches see it as a weakness that he hasn't fully physically developed yet. Similar to Joe Gomez' development
Anybody watches the Championship and could give us an update on this kid? If I remember correctly I liked his performance when he played against us in the League Cup back in October.
