The 2014/15 Premier League season is now just a matter of weeks away. Here, we look at five young players to watch during the new campaign.
5. Diego Poyet
West Ham recently bought Poyet from Charlton, where he debuted in January and became a hit during the spring. So far he is most famous for being the son of Gus Poyet, but has also put in several good performances in midfield in the Championship at such a young age.
4. Max Clark
A very exciting player from Hull's academy who can play at both left-back and centre-back. So far, Clark has not played a senior match for Hull's first team but his progress last season in the reserves and England's youth teams makes Steve Bruce almost guaranteed to give him playing time next season.
3. Anthony Knockaert
Most people will remember Knockaert for missing a crucial penalty in the playoff semi-finals of the Championship in 2012/13. But during the past season he compensated for this error with several brilliant and creative performances from the right flank.
2. Liam Moore
Moore has played more than 30 games at centre-back for Leicester, which is fairly impressive for a 21-year-old in such a physical league as the Championship.
Moore is a product of Leicester's youth academy and has been tipped for a brilliant future. He will have gained a lot from playing alongside the experienced Wes Morgan at the King Power Stadium.
1. Danny Ings
Ings was named as the Player of the Year in the Championship last term after scoring 26 goals in 45 appearances for Burnley.
Burnley's promotion to the Premier League makes it unlikely that the club will manage to keep him for more than half a season. Ings is one of the top young strikers in England who bases their game primarily on speed and courage to challenge the opposing defenders.
