It said: "The players on this list are rated by their potential growth.

"For example, 17 year old Danny Amos is a left back plays for Doncaster Rovers, and he has a current rating of 48.

"However, a few years down the line he could be as highly rated as 74. He'll be dirt cheap right now, but as he progresses, he could be a strong starter for most clubs, or he could be sold on for a tidy profit."
