An exciting left winger with bags of potential who has impressed for England's Schoolboys in the Victory Shield.

The tricky wide man made one appearance for the Under-18s in the 2012/2013 campaign, coming on as a substitute in the home reverse against Crystal Palace.

Mitchell also scored in a friendly win against Bury last term and the Under-17 defeat to Derby County at Loughborough.

After netting a stunning strike in the 2011 Aegon Cup against Bayern Munich that earned a place on the MUTV Goal of the Month shortlist, and a superb solo effort for his country against Northern Ireland's Schoolboys, the teenager has a penchant for the spectacular.

Described as a potential game-changer, he has explosive pace and is at his best in one-on-one situations with defenders when he can accelerate away from his marker. Performs on the wing but can also play up front if required because he is such a fine finisher.
