Premier League players to watch out for

With the new Premier League season starting on Saturday, it’s time to look at some of the players who may make a big impact in the league this season.

Name: Matej Vydra

Club: West Brom

Age: 21

Position: Striker

About: Vydra joined West Brom on loan from Udinese this summer. The Czech international had an impressive loan spell at Watford last season, scoring 22 goals for the London club on their way to the Playoff final. At 21, the 5ft 11 striker still has a lot to learn but has the ability to cause real damage in the Premier League. Vydra has pace and power along with a clinical finish and could be a successful signing for Steve Clarkes’ West Brom.

Name: Nathan Redmond

Club: Norwich City

Age: 19

Position: Winger

About: Redmond joined Norwich from Birmingham this summer after 3 years as a senior at Birmingham. Last season featured in 38 of the Midlands’ club 46 matches, contributing 2 goals. Redmond impressed during the season however, enough to be called up to Stuart Pearce’s England Under 21 squad for the summer’s European Championship. Redmond is a quick and lively winger with bags of talent and skills to take on players and this should help him to adapt to the Premier League without any problems.

Name: José Campaña

Club: Crystal Palace

Age: 20

Position: Center Midfield

About: Impressive youngster Campaña joined Palace from Sevilla this summer having been at the Spanish club from a school boy age. Campaña has played for Spain from Under 16 to Under 20 level, captaining the Under 19’s in their European Championship win in 2012 and captaining the Under 20’s in recent times. He has been compared to Santi Cazorla with his playing style, being known for his ball control and ability to pick a pass from midfield. Campaña could be key in Palace’s fight against relegation.

Name: Andreas Cornelius

Club: Cardiff City

Age: 20

Position: Striker

About: Cornelius is another new transfer, having joined Premier League new-boys Cardiff City from FC Copenhagen this summer. The 20 year old is a full Danish international with 7 caps and 1 goal. Last season, Cornelius broke into the Copenhagen team, scoring 18 goals in 32 league games. At 6ft 4, he is a tall, powerful striker, good in the air and strong at holding the ball up. At just 20 he also has time on his side and will be sure to get game time at Cardiff, having been signed for a then record transfer fee of around £8 million.

Name: Marco Van Ginkel

Club: Chelsea

Age: 20

Position: Midfield

About: Van Ginkel signed for Chelsea from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem after 4 years at the club. At the age of only 20, Van Ginkel has already played over 100 senior games and is a full Dutch international having made his debut in 2012. Last season he scored 8 goals in 33 league appearances for his club. He has described himself as a box to box player who covers a lot of ground and can score a goal. After his £8 million move, the 20 year old will hope to get plenty of game time under Mourinho as he looks to develop as a player.

Name: Jozy Altidore

Club: Sunderland

Age: 23

Position: Striker

About: Altidore returns to English football this season after having joined Sunderland this summer from AZ Alkmaar. He spent the 2009/10 season on loan at Hull, where he failed to impress, but his game has developed since then, having scored 31 goals in 41 appearances last season in Holland. At 23, he has bundles of international experience, having made 60 appearances for the US National side, scoring 17 goals. Altidore is a big, strong and powerful center forward and at 6ft 1, will be a lot to handle for any Premier League center half.
