At home in midfield, Tosin Kehinde is an enterprising prodigy with bags of potential.
A surprise debut as a late substitute in the Under-21s' win against Wolves illustrated the esteem in which is he held as he was only 16 at the time. The Lagos-born youngster has Premier Cup experience after rising through the ranks at the club and made four starts and a substitute appearance for the Academy team as a schoolboy. An astute passer with plenty of positional sense, he missed the 2014/15 season due to problems with his back but amassed 27 games for the Under-18s last season, scoring three times. He also scored in the UEFA Youth League, during the win at Wolfsburg, and showed he was capable of handling the exertions at a higher level. Warren Joyce involved him at Under-21 level and he managed three outings off the bench, and he stepped up again in the following season, after Joyce left for the Wigan Athletic job. He finished the campaign with 21 appearances, 12 of them from the bench, and contributed his first Reserves goal with a neatly-taken strike at Derby County.
