Barnet starlet Albert Adomah is attracting interest from the Premier League and his former boss has no doubt he will soon be playing at the top-level.
The pacey winger, who is equally at home up-front, has been a sensation for the League Two side since he arrived from non-league Harrow Borough.
Adomah has scored five goals since signing for Barnet at the end of January and has not missed a game.
But Barnet are already bracing themselves to lose Adomah - who has impressed the scouts in recent weeks.
The likes of Swansea, Cardiff, Plymouth, Queens Park Rangers and Charlton have all made checks - but now Premier League scouts are also taking an interest.
Tottenham, Manchester City, West Ham, Bolton and Sunderland are all believed to have filed glowing reports about the 20-year-old after attending recent games.
Adomah's progress comes as little surprise to Harrow manager David Howell - who discovered the player in his local park.
"Albert lives down the road and I saw him playing down the local park, I brought him in and after just one youth game I promoted him straight to the first-team," the former Birmingham and Southend midfielder told skysports.com.
"He played 99 games and he learnt in every game he played, I was confident he was ready to go to league football at that point and he has the ability to take it by storm.
"I have little doubt that he is a Premiership player, no doubt whatsoever, he has the ability to make other players look, well, average.
"But Albert is humble with it and you could not meet a nicer lad, he learns all the time."
