The 18 EFL wonderkids that you NEED to know about


The Football League is full of exciting young players.

Some are plying their trade in the first-team, whilst some are feeling their way into senior football. Others, are waiting in the wings, ripping it up for the under-23s and biding their time.

Every year, more and more youngsters emerge and light up the Championship, League One and League Two, with many earning themselves a Premier League move before long.

Over the years, so many EFL youngsters have gone on to become England internationals, with Dele Alli, Harry Maguire, Jordan Pickford and John Stones all players who have shone at a World Cup after raising through the Football League.

Now, it is no different. There is a sea of talent on show in the Championship and below.

Here, we look to identify 18 that you’ve just got to know about…

Nathan Collins – Stoke City

The Stoke centre-back is a real talent and had Manchester United sniffing around him over the course of the summer transfer window.

That tells you plenty about how good Collins is.

He’s made appearances in the Championship and League Cup so far this season, and at 18, is producing performances above his years.

We will see him in the Premier League one day.
