PFA Young Player nomination
"I was at home and my dad phoned to tell me to look on the PFA website. The first thing I did was ring my brother and I couldn't wait to spill it . It was just nice to be mentioned among those names."
Attraction of Manchester United
"A lot of my mates at school were United fans. It was half United and half Liverpool. Old Trafford has got a special excitement for me. I'd love it if I got some game time against them."
Influence of Leighton Baines
"I was very surprised he wasn't in the PFA team. He's probably been one of the best left-backs in Europe, not just the Premier League. I might be biased because he's a friend but if anyone deserved it, it was him. He's been our best player; nobody doubts that."
