TOM HUDDLESTONE (Derby County)
At the start of last season, aged 16, Huddlestone made his full league debut for the Rams.
By the end of the campaign he had earned a professional contract, made the most appearances for the club and was named young player of the year.
Huddleston's commanding physique is not his only attribute. He is powerful in the air and strong in the tackle, but what stands out most of all is his
touch and vision.
By no means the finished article, he has a big future and Rams boss George Burley will hope it is with Derby.
