21 now. Big summer for him. He either makes it this coming season or he’s never going to make it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s loaned out.

Not seen as much of him this season, but I think he’s another caught between two positions at left back and centre back. For me, he’s got a better chance at centre back but he needs to fill out some more.

He's got a sweet left foot but his main job is as a defender and I thought he was beaten a bit too easily, especially when flying into tackles and arriving too late. He couldn't unseat Lewis Gibson at left centre back and a lot of his appearances this season were as a substitute.

I can't see him making our first team; maybe management see a transfer value in him or they need him to start u23 games when Gibson and Morgan Feeney go on loan.

Welcome to the Fould Matty! As with all the youngsters you hope they are going to make it, it's down to him now, so go for it lad.

DK, I hate it when you beat me to the puns. Even the bad ones.

Sorry Mike, 'the early bird catches the squirm' or something like that.

Watched the England U-20 against Portugal before, I was surprised that not one player from Everton was in the squad, anyway they are out now beaten 3-2, serves them right for not having any of our lads to bail them out.

That Reece James made a good account of himself, I wouldn't mind getting him in, but again it's Chelsea, so anything could happen.

I watch the U23s regulars and Matty, is consistent, but has earned his deal.

It’s now or soon, meaning some time, but with some mentoring, he can do a job.

3 years ago, he was in my view the best defender, and evolving, he must adapt to the nest season.

Well earned Matty,.

DK, now you can cheer for the US! Came from behind to shock France today 3-2. Cracking game, end-to-end.

A 1 year deal seems a bit of a gamble, if he kicks on we could lose him.

Mike G, sure will look out for them, I suppose Antonee Robinson is in the senior squad list, can't find any info on the squad for US U-20's at all.

Are there any good looking prospects there? Although at such a young age they can look good then fade into obscurity a couple of years on, but usually real talent stands out.

I remember watching the Spanish U-18's and Deulofeu really stood out even then, and I was really happy when we got him, it was a great pity he was mis-managed and let go.

He was always criticised for not dropping back to help the defence out, which to a degree was true, but now he has matured and with Watford of all teams, he seems to have matured, and has proved time and time again, he can win a match single-handedly.
