Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson has said he rates midfielder Joe Newell as the best youngster the club has produced under his leadership.
The 18-year-old, who has been sidelined for four weeks with an ankle injury, has made one appearance this season.
"He'll get a chance, he would have played a part before his injury," Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
"He's the best one that's come through during my two times at the club, we think he's got a real chance."
Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has made youth development a priority at London Road and believes left-winger Newell will one day play for England Under-21s.
"If Joe finally gets a chance, he could be one that gets under-21 honours," MacAnthony said.
"We've identified eight players over the next three seasons who could break into the first-team squad, that's an incredible number for any club to have."
