Finding a top-class defensive midfielder is very hard nowadays. Most young children want to be strikers, wingers or number 10s.

According to a report from The Athletic, David Moyes considers Potts to be one of the most promising prospects in the under-23s.

Ex-West Ham youth team coach Dmitri Halajko described Potts as an ‘unbelievable’ talent just a few months ago (WHUFC.COM).

If he continues to work hard on and off the pitch, there is no reason why he can’t go on to be a big star at West Ham.
