On the latest episode of BBC Radio Sheffield's Blades Heaven podcast, former Sheffield United forward Carl Asaba heaped praise on 19-year-old midfielder Ollie Arblaster, who scored for England's Elite squad during the international break.

"His performances are brilliant. The way he played against Bournemouth was great.

"To deal with all the hype of the England Elite squad and then to go and score, it's just brilliant.

"He will get a great reception from the lads. I remember when I was here and we had Phil Jagielka breaking into the youth ranks and coming through. When we saw him after international duty, we were full of praise and admiration.

"The boys will welcome him back but also another mention should go to Louie Marsh. He had a tricky period with injuries and is such a confident lad. I saw him in pre-season and loved the way he played.

"The academy, the coaches and the infrastructure we have got is bringing through these great talents. It is really exciting."
