It is one thing being a talented youngster in a football club Academy, but you are unlikely to succeed in the modern game without an ambitious mentality and hard working attitude. Luckily for Fulham, young midfielder Solomon Sambou has both attributes in abundance.

The versatile Sambou, who can also play at centre-back, has been at the Club since he was 12 and has featured heavily for the Under-18s in their previous two title winning campaigns.

Nicknamed 'the Enforcer' within the Academy, Sambou was an expert at breaking up opposition attacks last season, and impressed many with his work rate and footballing intellect.
