England U21 head coach Aidy Boothroyd says before showing the Manchester United is sharing a room with bar rival Phil Foden on responsibility he has been impressed by Mason Greenwood.
Greenwood along with Manchester City midfielder Foden are contained together for the first time.
The 17-year-old has showcased in all of United’s matches this season.
“He’s a very, very gifted player,” Boothroyd said. “He walks through the doorway and you immediately like him because he’s such a humble, pleasant young bloke.
“He is rooming together with Phil funnily enough so that’s both Manchester lads getting together and performing for England and also residing together for a couple of weeks too.
“Mason’s a fantastic talent, we have just had one semester but he looks really impressive and will definitely add to the armoury we have got.”
Since making his debut nineteen-year-old Foden has featured 19 times. Boothroyd says that his position isn’t one to be worried about, despite fighting so far this year.
“Phil’s operating with the top players from the world and arguably the best coach in the world so he is going to find a great deal of positives from this,” he further added.
“He’s not playing games but I believe City and Pep [Guardiola] understand exactly what to do with him better than perhaps I’d since they watch more of him than I do.”
Considering that the summer’s unsatisfactory Championship campaign – which watched Boothroyd’s staff depart the tournament at the group stage – three members of that squad were called up into the senior side.
Mason Mount, aaron Wan-Bissaka and James Maddison have been chosen by Gareth Southgate, also Boothroyd believes there has never been a better time to make the step from the U21s.
“It is great for me although we had the disappointment of this summer, three celebrities have come from it. They are all really fantastic characters and I’m absolutely thrilled for them,” he explained.

“There has never been a better time to become an England player using a guy who is brave enough to play with them at Gareth.
“I believe they’re three very gifted players and they take advantage of themselves. They are currently working as hard as they can to be all that they may be.
“They deservedly got into the England team and they need to do this last bit of getting to the group and receiving a couple caps under their belt.”
The U21s kick-off their qualifying campaign with a visit to Turkey on Friday, until three days they go home to play with Kosovo in Hull.
