Crystal Palace man has drawn praise from England manager Gareth Southgate after impressing both in training and in a high profile game.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been speaking about the impact of Marc Geuhi who once again impressed during the game against Ukraine.

The Crystal Palace defender was only making his fifth England cap and looked composed and played with the maturity of a seasoned England international.

At a time the likes of Chelsea’s Levi Colwill are grabbing the headlines, Guehi, who was linked to both Tottenham and Arsenal, continues to rise through the ranks, and Southgate has been full of praise for him ahead of the game against Scotland.

The England boss said about the Palace defender after the game: “That’s a really great test for a young centre-back in one of his first qualifying games for us.

“I thought he came through it really well. He had good composure – he never looked rushed and was positionally good. So I’m very pleased with what he did.”

Guehi has handled himself well since moving from Chelsea to Palace two seasons ago. There had been talks of a move away but once it became clear that he wasn’t going to be the first choice at any of the clubs interested he held his head up and got to work in south London.

LondonWorld sources say he will be a man in demand again in the January transfer window especially now that he is starting high-profile games for England.

With an incredible ability to read the game and intercept while being dominant both with his head and feet, the former Chelsea defender is a rising star in English football. Still, Palace will hold out for a fee in the region of £60million if any club comes for him in January.
