      Young English breakthrough stars

      Every year hundreds of academy players get released from the club they have been at for years. Those who do  get the contract they have been working for, are often then the subject of a number of loan moves without ever getting close to the first team of their parent club. We often forget just how hard it is for young English players these days. The riches of the premier league ensure that clubs would rather invest in players than invest in time, and let their home-grown players thrive. Every season although, there are exceptions. Injuries can lead to opportunities, and cup competitions can offer a platform for young Englishmen to launch the start of their career. These players have taken the most of their opportunities this year, and it won’t be long until they’re considered for the England senior team.
