Seems to be fully in the first team picture at the moment

Anyone know much about him, and is he the real deal?

He's a central midfielder right?

I guess with Kelly and Eccles injured we're short of bodies there at the moment. Will be interesting to see if he's ahead of Allen and Shipley there.

No but some of the posters mentioned he's a fairly big unit of a young fella must be highly rated to be close to first team squad already

If anyone's got him on insta he's added some highlights over the seasons of his play. I think most of them do, why not

He’s one hell of a unit for a 17 year old i’m a believer if you are good enough you are old enough I don’t expect him to be a regular yet but don’t think he’s that far off. I don’t watch the U/23 or 18s but my mate does regularly and he’s been talking about Howley for ages.

What’s your mate been saying about him?

This kid is a real prospect looking forward to see how he develops in the next couple of years.

Liked what I saw in pre-season. Didn't hide and was always brave to show for the ball. Has a good build too, not something you see often in a 17 year old. Hopefully he'll get some more sniffs at men's football, should we be comfortable in games. Big chance until Kelly returns.

Let's hope the Wales coaches don't turn his head as happened with George Thomas and Cian Harries
Great that the lad is doing so well though

Can't see it. We're not the same club that George Thomas left. In hindsight neither him or Harries are good enough for where we are now at anyway.

That’s the trouble to repeat a soccer cliche there are no easy games in this division so giving him a game to see how he fares is perhaps not an option but he’s seen as good enough for a matchday squad which is good.

I'm thinking more like if we ever get the luxury of being 2 up with 15 to play, then that's his chance. Can't see him ever starting unless we are forced to.
