Lagos born 18 year old Nigeria midfielder Tosin Kehinde might be the next one to follow in the steps of youngsters making their breakthrough at Old Trafford under manager Louis Van Gaal at English giant Manchester United.

At home as a holding midfielder, Kehinde is an enterprising prodigy with bags of potential that saw him made his debut for the U-21 at the age of 16.

As a school boy the Nigerian has Premier Cup experience after rising through the ranks at Manchester United and already has four starts and a substitute appearance for Paul McGuiness Under-18 team as a school boy.

An astute passer with plenty of positional sense, he missed the 2014/15 season due to problems with his back earning praise from Academy adviser Les Kershaw.

“He’s a talented player and a really nice lad” He told the club official website.

Yesterday while Adnan Januzaj stole the headline with his brace for the U-21 in their 4-0 win against Oldham FC the Nigerian came in as a 54th minute substitute and Old Trafford are already tipping him to join the team’s pre season tour in the summer.
