Nigel Pearson: Signs up youngsters

All four players have featured heavily for Steve Beaglehole's table-topping Under-21 side this season, with second-year scholar Paratore, 18, also playing a key role in Trevor Peake's Under-18 set-up.

Development squad striker Blyth, 20, finished the season as top scorer for the Under-21s, as well as picking up loan experience with Burton and Notts County.

Pearson, 20, was also a regular in the development squad's successful campaign before injury cut short the right-back's campaign.

Taft, 19, has underlined his potential with some impressive defensive displays to add to the experience he gained under Noel Blake with England's Under-18 and Under-19 sides.

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
