Saw this too. I'd never heard of him before, but certainly very encouraging to read. Seems we're going about helping him develop the right way. Just hope we can hold on to him long enough to see him in our first team !

 

Interesting to think someone at our club has contacts at Benfica and Bayern.

Imagine at that age getting the opportunity to train at those two clubs. Some experience for the boy. 

Hopefully we get the chance to see him develop at our club and make sure we help him reach his full potential. 

I think if he was to leave at such a young age, the compensation fee is next to nothing.

This is my big concern. It will be a massive kick in the baws if this boy does well and we get nothing for it.

Absolutely, but yet another great advert for the academy. If you were a young kid, or parents of a young kid, you’d have to impressed at what we can offer them. Surely a better opportunity than with the OF.

The only thing i would say we have in our favour if any, is that you only need to look at the players who have came from our academy and worked their way into the first team. This is one incentive to stay at the club and earn your move at a later date when you have games under your belt. Teams like Benfica and Bayern Munich however don't come sniffing around too often.

John McGinn bided his time and got a move a few years down the line which now has him playing at the highest level.

Don’t forget Kenny “Mad dog” McLean.

Someone asked about him at the AGM last night. Recently signed a new contract and aim is to have him in the first team by 16 or 17. No indication he's in any rush to leave.

Perhaps not, but no 14 year old is going to say no to an opportunity with Bayern Munich or Benfica. Top class coaching, miles better than anyone in Scotland could dream of providing. If that was my kid I’d be saying to him to grasp that opportunity. Whether or not he makes it, it’ll be a massive highlight in their life.

I, an opportunity to sign for someone before we see them.
