Sheffield United's teenage goalkeeper George Long is set for the very top, according to manager Danny Wilson.

Long, 17, made his full debut at Swansea on the final day of last season and Wilson has started with the academy product in both Johnstone's Paint Trophy games of the current term.

Wilson told the club's official website: "He's done absolutely fantastically, it's easy to sometimes forget just how young he is, his size and stature belies his age. There is no doubt he has a great future ahead of him."

He added: "He needs games like this, he needs to make big decisions at times in games and I thought he did that very well against Rotherham. He looked very assured at times."
