Scott Malone is in awe of teammate Ryan Sessegnon's ability and can't wait to see what kind of player he develops into in a few years time.
The entire country knows about the 16-year-old after he burst onto the scene with Fulham this season and got people talking even more after bagging a brace at St James' Park against Newcastle United.
Sessegnon has recently said he wants to help get 'his club' back into the Premier League and is ignoring talks of a move away from Craven Cottage, with Liverpool linked, and Malone believes he will be "one hell of a player" if keeps developing like he is.
The 26-year-old plays the same position as Sessegnon and, speaking from experience, he believes that the youngster will go from strength to strength playing in the first team.
He said:"I enjoy playing with him, it allows me to defend and him attack and I think we work well together and can both defend and both attack so whoever plays will give 100%.
"His age is key - he's only 16, god knows how good he will be at 18/19.
"He's got pace and is quite strong for a little lad, I'm sure when he fills out he will be stronger, he scores goals and for his age he looks like he's been playing for six or seven years like I have, so if he can keep progressing he will be one hell of a player.
"He's a nice kid and doesn't say boo to a goose - he learns from everyone, not just me.
"I was in a similar situation when I was 16, not playing first team Championship games but I was in and around a Championship team playing reserve games.
"It's totally different to what he is used to in the U18s or U19s, you're interacting with grown men day in day out and he'll only go from strength to strength."
