Charlie Taylor - The Leeds United star who looks destined to play for England

The left-back has recently showcased himself as the best in his position in the Championship.

Leeds United have picked up a reputation recently for the development and emergence of young talent at the club.

Sam Byram, Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook are predicted to be top stars in the future and Leeds are desperately hoping to hold on to all three players for the foreseeable future.

All three have been mentioned in the past as potentially future England internationals.

However, it might be the young left-back who truly deserves that praise.

Leeds United have been on Sky TV twice in the past week given neutrals a chance to see Charlie Taylor for the first time since his return from glandular fever.

What a talent he looks.

He has all the attacking prowess of a Leighton Baines or a Luke Shaw type but also possesses the positioning and tactical aptitude of England's most capped full-back Ashley Cole.

Add to that the fact he looks like he could slip into central defence with ease - considering his strength, aerial ability and tackling prowess and quite frankly it is hard to see how, injury permitting, this Leeds United starlet will not go on to one day represent his country.

Leeds fans will hope that is the case, but that when he does he is still at Elland Road.
