Sam Allardyce has confirmed that new signing Doneil Henry may be one for the future!
The young Canadian was today announced as the club’s latest signing and was brought in by the manager after receiving a recommendation from his former player Ryan Nielsen .
And commenting on the new boy Allardyce said: “Ryan was my captain at Blackburn for a couple of years and he rang us and told us about Doneil.
“He said this lad definitely has Premier League potential and he has everything he needs.
“With a little coaching from us and work in terms of how to defend in the Premier League, Ryan says he has all the attributes to be a good player.
“We have invested in him for the near future, so we do hope he can make some sort of appearance this season if he settles in and does as well as Ryan thinks he will. If not, we hope he is certainly one for the future.”
