Players made their first team appearance with lower reputations than Keaton coming through the ranks so its a shame we never gave it him in my opinion, feel like had we of done we could of kept a hold of him, but money talks I suppose and Barnsley probably have gave him something larger than what he is already on here.
We were an automatic promotion chasing team all season. No team in that position is going to take a gamble on testing out a young, untested lad out in our situation, unless they are absolutely mustard. And if he was, we would've seen him far sooner.
No brainer for the lad when the choice is probably sit in Barnsley's 23's or our 21's. Will be interesting to see if he kicks on and makes a career for himself.
