Jamie Shackleton and Joe Gelhardt also replied, saying ‘love it my mate💪🏼💙’ and ‘love it cress❤️’ respectively.

Cresswell is certainly making fine progress at Elland Road.

The teenager managed to make his first-team debut this season when lining up against Hull in the Carabao Cup back in September.

The defender has made seven league appearances for Mark Johnson’s Under-23 side this season, who sit second in the Premier League 2 table.

Leeds’ official announcement also reveals that Cresswell’s efforts for the development side have earned him a call-up to England’s Under-19 side.

The Preston-born player is just one of many exciting young prospects plying their trade in the development squad at Thorp Arch right now.

Marcelo Bielsa is also privileged enough to watch the progress of promising forward prodigies in Sam Greenwood and Gelhardt, who have five and four Premier League 2 goals respectively this season.

With Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper and Pascal Struijk ahead of him in the pecking order, Cresswell might have to bide his time for a first-team chance.

However, given his rapid progress already, who knows where the teenager will be come the end of the season.
