An extremely raw but promising young central midfielder who is attracting the attention of Premier League teams. He has stood out like a sore thumb in League One, with his abilities clearly more than enough to play at a higher level, the main question is how high a level he can go.

Yearwood is quick and strong, with the build of a sprinter and the strength to bulldoze through opposing players, at least in League One. He likes to get on the ball and use his pace and power to run into dangerous areas where he can unleash a shot or pass.

He does strike a ball very cleanly, which also suggests he can play at a higher level, but he needs to work on his vision to learn when to spot a pass and decision-making to know which pass to make. That should improve with experience, but he is so raw that he is in desperate need of moulding, though just to knock off the rough corners, rather than to change his style of play.

Right now he is slightly similar to Liverpool's Naby Keita, but playing from a deeper position, and stronger than the Reds' player. His positioning and timing of runs off the ball are not quite there yet, but it all depends now on how he is used and coached as to what direction he develops in.

Yearwood needs a move to push himself, but it will need to be carefully considered to a club that will develop him as a player. There is potential there to be an international player, but those raw edges will need to be carefully polished off him first.
