How long does his contract run @MutableEarth ?He's not even ready yet he looks a class above (Dundalk tax notwithstanding).
Having a player like him with his movement, ability on the ball, technical ability and his growing aptitude for the kind of focus and intensity needed to play top level football, is truly a blessing to this football club we support. The hype is truly warranted in this regard.
Take a good look at this picture:
If this was Xhaka or even Ceballos, they lose this ball. Willock and AMN wouldn't fare much better either and they're both my boys. Azeez? I'm not even that worried. One turn away from pressure with relative ease.
Like I said - he ain't ready yet, but his readiness can't come soon enough. A few more cameos like that and a bit of time cooking in the U23s and he's there.
He has 1 year and a half left with a 2 year extension option. The deal he signed was a unique one - he's the only scholar I can remember who's first deal was a 3 year, plus it had a 2 year extension on it. It's basically a 5 year deal and so far there's 3 and a half years left on it. He isn't going anywhere!
