Demi Mitchell,


An exciting player with bags of potential went back on loan to Hearts for the 2018/19 season.

The homegrown product made his first-team debut at left-back against Crystal Palace on the final day of the 2016/17 Premier League season and has plenty of experience from two tours of the United States with Jose Mourinho's squad.

Mitchell impressed for England's Schoolboys in the Victory Shield before being part of the squad that won the Under-17 European Championship in 2014. His initial work came either in attack, scoring a hat-trick once against Newcastle United for the Under-18s or mainly on the wing, before reverting to left-back with great success in 2016/17. It marked a real shift in position for such an attack-minded player and, as he explained to, he was learning on the job in the early days.

However, he continued to supply goals and assists from the role and emerged as a key figure in the Reserves, finishing with six goals in total, before getting the call from Jose Mourinho in May 2017.

A place on the summer tour followed and, after being a mainstay with the Under-23s and contributing four goals from defence, he joined Hearts on loan. The spell in Scotland allowed him to showcase his talent to devastating effect and even though injury curtailed his progress, he still picked up United’s Denzil Haroun Reserve-Team Player of the Year award.

A second stint at Tynecastle was agreed ahead of the transfer deadline in August and he also signed a new contract until 2020, when sealing the season-long switch to Edinburgh. However, injury curtailed his campaign north of the border and he was forced to return early to the Aon Training Complex.
