Paddy Kenny issues bold prediction after 'magnificent' Jebbison development at Sheffield United
Sheffield United loanee Daniel Jebbison will be “ready to score bags of goals” when he returns from his loan spell at Burton Albion.
So says Blades icon Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Jebbison got off the mark for Albion on 28 September.
The 18-year-old curled a superb shot into the top corner in the 2-1 victory over Portsmouth in League One on Tuesday evening.
Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink called the striker’s goal “magnificent” in conversation with the club’s media team after the final whistle.
Jebbison featuerd twice in the League Cup for the Blades before he was loaned to Albion in the summer.
The rising star also played four times for United last season, scoring his first senior goal against Everton in May.

And Kenny has backed Jebbison to return from his loan spell a “more experienced” marksman.
“It’s fantastic to see him get off the mark,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“There has been a lot of hype about him since he got that goal against Everton in the Premier League last season.
“There was talk over bigger clubs looking at him a little while ago, which shows you how highly he is rated.
“I think it was really important for him to go out on loan so he can continue that development.
“He has scored an absolute wonder goal and that will set him up now for the rest of the season. I reckon he can get plenty more goals for them.
“He’ll come back more experienced and ready to score bags of goals for Sheffield United at a higher level.”
