Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed the qualities of Chelsea's right full-back, Reece James, describing him as a young, quick and aggressive player.

“I like this kid,” he said in a live Instagram question and answer session, captured by Evening Standard.

“With his crossing, he puts teams under pressure, he wants to hurt the opposing team and make you face your own goal.

“He's got so much growth in his game. He is versatile - he's played centre-half for Wigan, he can play right-back, even in centre midfield.

“Plus he looks like he's got a great temperament which is huge and physically he is like a middleweight boxer - he's strong, solid, quick and aggressive.

“I think he'll become a mainstay in that team.”

James has been one of Chelsea's key players this season, after coming back from a loan spell at Wigan Athletic.
