Nigel Clough last night outlined the qualities which convinced him that Connor Dimao, Sheffield United’s teenage midfielder, can flourish at senior level, writes James Shield.

Dimaio, a Republic of Ireland youth international, hopes to make his fourth appearance for the South Yorkshire club against Port Vale later this week after impressing during Easter Monday’s draw with Tranmere Rovers.

And Clough, labelling the 18-year-old’s recent performances at Prenton Park and Crawley Town “as good as anything we’ve seen for a while,” insisted that Dimao has the potential to become the latest graduate of United’s Redtooth Academy to command a regular position in his first team squad.
