Burns is a big yik as well, if he fills out could be very useful in the future, seemed to handle Akinfenwa reasonably well though against Wycombe, cant imagine he’s going to come up against many stronger strikers than that in his career! I have no concerns about the ball playing ability of any of our centre backs in the academy, including Shea Charles who I dont think will make it with us. However it remains to be seen how good their defensive ability is at the top level
Like with most they’ll probably go down the loan route for club to sell on. No point releasing players at this age so only option is to give long contract in hope of selling, as it’s unlikely even 1 player every age group will break through to first team.
