“The 18-year-old has risen through the ranks of Southampton’s Academy, earning a promotion to the Under-23s squad in 2019 after a string of impressive performances.

On the youngster’s progress, Horseman commented: “He had a frustrating start to the season being injured. But he is an athletic defender who has shown an ability to deal with 1v1 situations as well as being comfortable on the ball.
