There is a train of thought that Mitchell could head up to Hearts, for whom he has appeared a few times on loan, but he’s another who has potential for us. He’s a left back and was one of three my mate Pete said he felt could do a job for us. I know we’ve got the odd option at left back (Edun, Melbourne and Coker), but Mitchell can operate on the left wing too, presenting an interesting option.
He won the UEFA European U-17 Championship with England in 2014 and played for his country up to Under 20 level. He’s 23 too, so again not the youngest out there. I like that he’s had senior football with Hearts and he would come as more of an attacking option, I’m sure. He only converted to left back when Cameron Borthwick-Jackson left United on loan for Wolves. Borthwick-Jackson is also available, but I wouldn’t pay him in peanut M&Ms.
