Will Hughes – Derby County
It’s very difficult to do a list like this and not include the Football League’s Young Player of the Year, Will Hughes. Still only 19, Hughes has won many admirers over the past few seasons and will look to help his Derby side go that one step further this season into the Premier League. An expansive midfielder that can not only dribble past opponents but slice through them with a killer ball, he commands attention from the opposition at all times.
Also an impressive tackler despite his diminutive frame, should he bulk up over the next few years we could have a very special box-to-box midfielder on our hands. The Rams will have to try their hardest to keep him, especially during the winter transfer window, but should they keep a player of this kind of quality in their squad then they will be a contender for the Championship trophy.
