Middlesbrough's David Wheater is on the verge of becoming the next great English centre back. The 21-year-old defender guided Middlesbrough to an important early victory over Tottenham Hotspur yesterday. It was Middlesbrough's first opeing day victory in eight years. He kept Tottenham's multiple attacking options in line and even found the score sheet after scoring his club's first goal this season. Having already seen action with the English U-21 squad, it is only a matter before the Englishman finds minutes on the senior team.
What is your take? Is he going to be a superstar or will he fade like so many other promising youngsters?
