#9. Jonathan Leko: Age 17
Jonathan Leko grabbed headlines last season when he became the first player born in 1999 to start a Premier League game. The striker dons the jersey of West Bromwich Albion of the Premier League and has been at the club since 11-years-old. Therefore, he can be considered as a product of the West Brom youth academy. Jonathan has certainly come a long way since he first arrived in England from the Democratic Republic of Congo at the tender age of eight after his father was granted asylum. And, he still has a long way to go before he gets mentioned in the same breath as some of the legends in the game. However, he does have time on his side.
