Kasey Palmer
Kasey Palmer

Type Kasey’s name into Google and you’ll be treated to a showreel of tricks and skills. In one game alone, against Manchester United’s U21s in April 2016, he nutmegs Phil Jones and delivers a cross with a rabona before scoring a sensational free-kick from 20 yards.

It was therefore no surprise to see a number of clubs scrambling to add Kasey and his attacking capabilities to their ranks in the summer.

After scoring on his Bristol City debut against Bolton Wanderers, he quickly became a fan favourite thanks to his tricks, of course, but also his willingness to take on opposing defences and make things happen.

Despite Kasey featuring for Chelsea’s pre-season for the 2019/20 campaign, he returned to the Robins in a permanent deal.

Honours: U21 Premier League, FA Youth Cup x2, UEFA Youth League x2, EFL Championship Play-Offs
