Perkins gives Moyes a big nudge

Sonny Perkins v Derby County

Sonny Perkins gave manager David Moyes a big nudge when scoring for England U18s in their 2-0 win over Wales in the latest round of international fixtures.

The  young striker is at the centre of speculation that he could be on his way out of the club this summer with Leeds and Villa tracking him.

That’s always felt a bit odd at a time of the year when clubs are looking to bring in players who can immediately challenge for first team place but regardless of that he has clearly caught the eye of scouts.

Beyond being used as a late sub on one occasion the front man has spent the rest of his time on the first team bench when included in the squad.

The 2021/22 Dylan Tombides Award winner scored England U18s’ second finish in the four nations tournament win over Wales, expertly controlling a pass ten minutes from time before finding the net via the post.

  1. Maybe Mr Moyes will only recognise him as a top prospect once he signs for Stevie G?

  2. Wales U18 is not exactly an indicator of ability to cope with premier league.

  3. Do we have any idea of what sort of contract Sonny is looking for?
    Does he want a stack of £££’s up front and easy ‘get out’ clauses, or is he simply trying to ensure his financial future, in case it all goes a bit South … you know, a bit Freddie Sears.
