Npower Championship: Four rising stars

Published 3 Comments

In the Npower Championship, there are a wide variety of players. Some are team legends, playing at their club for many years, but some are new, promising young players who could take the league by storm. 

Here we have a few players who could make the spotlight for England in the near future.

Sam Byram | Leeds United

This young right back has been in exceptional form this season, and has picked up Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, Player's Player and Supporters Player of the year for his club. 

So it's no surprise that Premier League teams like Manchester City and Everton are interested in him, and are willing to pay around £10 million for the youngster. At still only 19-years-old, there are big things in store for the lad.

Nathan Redmond | Birmingham City

Redmond had his breakout season last year, and this season he's recently had a rich run of form. The 19-year-old right winger has not been given the same amount of praise as other young wingers, like Wilfried Zaha and Raheem Sterling, but has certainly got the same ability. 

He has been tracked by teams like Norwich, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham over the past month, and last season was scouted by Manchester City. A future England star and one to look out for.

Will Hughes | Derby County

The 17-year-old is building quite a reputation on the back of some excellent performances for club and country. The England U21 international has made some crucial appearances this season, and the versatile midfielder has been the newest sensation in the Championship this year. Derby will have to do everything within their power to not let Will be sold to a top-flight club this summer.

Tom Ince | Blackpool

To complete the list, we have none other than Paul Ince's son, Tom Ince. His fine form the last couple of seasons have led to interest from Tottenham, his former club Liverpool and other Premier League clubs. He is known for a good goal-scoring record for a winger, and his speed on the wing. At 21-years-old, he's the oldest player on this list but the most outstanding.
