James Milner has heaped praise on reported Tottenham Hotspur target Evan Ferguson after training with him at Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Seagulls are arguably the best-run club in the Premier League in recent years. The way they’ve identified and developed young players is extraordinary, and 19-year-old Ferguson is set to be their next big star.
James Milner praises Tottenham target Evan Ferguson
Now, James Milner, who has shared the dressing room with some elite players over the years, has heaped praise on the young Ireland international.
He said on TNT Sports: “I think [he’s] a great lad, first and foremost. Wants to learn, wants to get about, which is so important.
“He’s in a great place in terms of the club, the manager he’s working with. Senior players he works with, looking at someone like Welbz [Danny Welbeck] – how he goes about his business and how he plays. He’s in a great spot.
“His finishing is phenomenal you know, just so good. If a chance is falling, you want it to go to him. He had a chance at West Ham, we were joking about it. He didn’t score but he made it out of nothing – he hit it instinctively.”
