The 21-year-old who made his debut against Sheffield United back in August has been a regular in Lampard's starting XI.

“I put trust in him early in the season – I think that was obvious with the way the pre-season went with the centre-backs,” said Lampard.

“At the moment, he has really delivered and long may that continue. I think there is a lot more to come still.

“Last year as Derby he was fantastic. But you don't know until you put players in. Against Sheffield United at home was a game where I thought he deserved his opportunity for his training.

"Those are the rules here. You have to train at a level. Then he gave me a big problem because he played so well and he has continued to do that. Yes, he is a project in a way but a nice one because everything you want him to do, he stands up and delivers.”
