On the international stage, the young winger has shown promise by becoming the youngest player to appear for the Welsh international team at 16 years of age in 2013, beating a record previously held by Real Madrid's Gareth Bale.
He has made four appearances for Wales, scoring one goal in the China Cup in a 6-0 win over China.
