Player Profile

Jalil joined the club at age 16, showing the quality available on the continent at youth level.

The Moroccan has the ability to play both in central midfield and at centre back. This versatility, combined with his quality, meant that he rarely missed a game for the U18s throughout 18/19 and 19/20 whilst available.

At U23 level, Billy Barr seems more inclined to use Jalil in midfield, his physical presence is a useful asset to dominate the game in the middle of the park along with his ability to pick a pass.

The youngster was a key cog in the FA Youth Cup side that reached the semi-final in 19-20, bagging himself a goal in the 4-2 win over Preston North End in February 2020.

The Moroccan will be looking to claim a place in the U23s over the coming years in a crowded midfield, with the ultimate goal of looking to break through to the first team.
