Adeyemi, 22, only joined the Blues last summer as a free agent, however Clark believes the ex-Norwich man has all the qualities of a leader.

"I have spoken to the board, (current captain) Paul Robinson and Tom about it," said Clark, speaking to the official club website.

"I just think he is future captain/manager/managerial material within his career. He is a very intelligent boy, he is our PFA (Professional Footballers' Association) club representative at such a young age and, usually, when he is fit he is going to play.

"He was taken aback when I spoke to him about it on Thursday morning, but delighted also. It's something you enjoy seeing when you tell a player some good news like that.

"So I've made the right choice and going forward in the future, he's a potential leader."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
