    There was a lot of fuss and hype around this wonderkid before we signed him, so I'll be interested to see what the academy football followers on the forum make of him in particular this season.

    Already playing with the EDS as an U16 and providing assists according to the academy Twitter account. Quite a stellar progress.

    If i told you that.........
    Just to put the slightest of correctness on this he is actually 16 and is an official U18 - born 14/6/2002 which makes him 16 and officially part of the under 18's - still a wonderful achievement none-the-less

    They've got his bday wrong on there, I THINK that birthday is McAtee but not 100%

    In this interview, Knight says his favoured squad number would be 14 as that is the day he was born;

    And the official UEFA site has his birthday recorded as the 14/6/2002 as well;

    Cheers, I was actually wondering if he was 15 or 16 as I've seen some sources say he's 15 and some saying he's 16
