We’ve examined Transfermarkt.com’s stats from the 2021-22 PL2 and U18 Premier League campaigns to see who could be making the step into senior football next season.
There could be loan deals to be made, or even a permanent transfer or two, as the rising stars from the Premier League and Championship look to break free from youth football.
Here’s what we found out.

3. Jack Vale - Blackburn Rovers
At 21-years-old Jack Vale is one of the oldest players on this list, but has still been prolific for Rovers under-23s. In 14 appearances he scored 13 goals, and may be looking to break free of the shackles of youth team football. Picture: David Price/Arsenal FC via Getty Images

4. Will Swan - Nottingham Forest
Swan contributed immensely to Forest's fourth place finish in the Premier League 2 Division 2 by scoring 12 goals in 21 appearances. The 21-year-old could be looking to step into senior football if the senior side gain promotion to the Premier League. Picture: Ryan Pierse/Getty Images
