Premier League teams track Aussie teen Tanner

He’s only 17 but Blackburn Rovers and Australian youth international Hyuga Tanner is already attracting interest from the English topflight.

The former Marconi Stallions and PCYC Parramatta FC junior has enjoyed a rapid rise, progressing from the Rovers Academy to the Under 21 side and is now pushing for a first team spot.

And after featuring for Rovers as a substitute during pre-season, the Aussie teen sensation generated plenty of transfer speculation in the UK media. 

It’s early days yet but Tanner has set his sights on emulating the exploits of his hero, Steven Gerrard.

While it would be easy to succumb to the pressure of that goal, the starlet is keeping a level-headed approach.

“There is always pressure to do well, that’s football,” Tanner said.

“At the moment I'm very comfortable at Blackburn Rovers as they are giving me a lot of opportunities.

“At this stage I just want to concentrate on improving my game and pushing for a first team place.”

Tanner also demonstrates maturity when it comes to being a teenager too, adding: “Football takes up most of my time, but I still get to see my friends at the weekend.

“Sometimes I miss out on parties, staying out late, eating what I want.”

After showing early promise in Australia, Tanner piqued the interest of overseas scouts before his father moved the family back to his native England. 

The young Aussie joined the Championship outfit after arriving in the North West of England. 

Tanner has represented Australia at youth level (Joeys) and is hoping to press his case for an U-21 spot if his development continues on its current upward trajectory.

A midfielder with quick feet, he also cites Andres Iniesta, Xavi, David Silva and Philippe Coutinho among his current favourite players. 

Having watched the Premier League, it’s now within touching distance and Tanner wants to grab any opportunity that may come his way.

“Growing up and watching the English Premier League, I've always dreamed of playing in that league,” he  said.



There are some good Australians playing overseas at present - there is talented young keeper with AFC Bournemouth playing U21's - just 17 and on a professional contract .

Sure the Roos have got no results, but what an exciting couple of weeks it's been for our Juniors !
We secured and seen rising talents:
Herd, Sainsbury, Luongo, Wright, Gameiro is scoring heaps, Leckie scored !
Brad Smith is Aussie now, Cameron Burgess is Aussie now,
Jake Brimmer 16 showed us he can bend it better than free-kick king Beckham and now
Hyuga Tanner is playing well above his age level.
That's like 10 new or potential Socceroos in a week. Can't help but feel this emerging young Aussies is only happening cause Ange is encouraging them and they know they have a chance under Ange.

Why didn't these youngsters pop up under Pim or Holger ? In my opinion, Australia always had lots of talent, but Pim and Holger buried it under Euro anti-Australian Football discrimination.
A lot of Euro people still think we can't play football and they only see results, that will change very soon.
We also qualified for the U-17 WC !
