Tell us a bit about your early days as a football player up to today.

I started playing football since I could walk with my first word being ball! I played for my local team Bridgend street for a year or two before being scouted for Cardiff. I played for Cardiff for 9 years before making the big move to United.


What are you most proud of to date in your career

Being a local lad from Cardiff getting scouted and bought for the biggest club in the world is a huge achievement no one can take away from me


Where do you hope to be playing in five years?

I hope to be playing at the highest level of football playing in the biggest games with and against the best players in the world.

What are your main strengths?

My main strengths would be my confidence, work rate and having an eye for goal. I play for the team and my teammates. Probably the strength that’s stuck with me for most of my life so far on and off the pitch is just not giving up and not being happy with what I’ve got, always wanting more.


Who is your biggest inspiration in your sport?

The person I look up to most would be Ronaldo, just growing up watching him play has motivated and inspired me. The best ever.


What are the next steps/moves in your career?

I’ve got to take it a step at a time and not get too carried away however I just need to keep improving myself to be the best player and person I can be. Also making a first team debut within the next couple of years wouldn’t be that bad!
