Reece James is an 18 year old full back from the Chelsea academy who has been highly touted as a bright prospect for some time now.
He’s physically ready for the men’s game, and he made his debut on loan at Wigan on Saturday, as they began the season with a win over Sheffield Wednesday. James’ showing in particular had Latics fans very excited.
Here are some of the Tweets from Wigan fans who were clearly very impressed with the 18 year old’s performance.
Hard to choose,quite a few to pick from.

Especially Reece James, inexcusable to see him still in the championship when I feel he could start in half the teams in Europe's top 6 leagues.

Will struggle to get back in the starting 11 with how Reece James has started too

Conclusion after pre-season: Reece James will be a belting player for Latics.
Conclusion after 15 minutes: Antonee Robinson will be a belting player for Latics.#wafc
