Manchester City youngster Cole Palmer has enjoyed the international break.
Two standout performances for England Under-21s in Slovenia and Andorra mean Palmer’s reputation is growing fast.
The midfielder can count Pep Guardiola among his biggest fans, so what does the future hold for the 19-year-old? We take a look.
Who is he?
Born in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Palmer is a boyhood City fan.
After being rejected by Liverpool and Bolton for being too small, then turning down an offer from Manchester United, Palmer joined his beloved City at Under-8s.
He has spent the past 11 years in the academy, shining at every level and going on to captain the Under-18 side in the 2019-20 campaign.
City’s academy is up there with Chelsea’s as the best in the country and Palmer is one of the most exciting talents to come out of it.
