“He is something else,” he continued. “When he came on he changed the game. His presence is remarkable. When he gets on it and turns, no one can stop him with his power. They were trying to foul him but they couldn’t get near him. We need that."


Despite enjoying his time in the Championship, Colwill revealed that he is ready for Premier League action ahead of a potential Chelsea return.

When asked about his next step, Colwill said: “Things have been going well. Why am I going to start thinking about the future when I have to concentrate on the present? It has to stay that way.

“I think I’m ready (for the Premier League). I’ve learnt a lot this year so the next step I hope will be in the Premier League with Chelsea, Huddersfield or whoever.”

Colwill has attracted interest from the likes of Leicester City, Fulham, Southampton and Huddersfield over a potential move in the summer, so it is likely that he will be playing Premier League football no matter what whilst Anjorin could also find himself in England's top leagues.
