Rio Ferdinand has picked Chelsea's Reece James as the Premier League Young Player of the Season. The Manchester United legend pointed at the defender's importance in the starting XI while revealing why he was going for the Englishman.

Reece has been a vital part of Chelsea's starting XI this season but has missed a few games due to injuries. He has missed a total of 19 games but has still scored 6 goals and assisted seven in his 34 games.

Speaking on his Vibe with Five podcast, Ferdinand was full of praise for the Chelsea youngster. He highlighted his performance at Old Trafford and said:

"I'm going to go Reece James [for Premier League young player of the season]. I just think the importance that he has in this team, when he doesn't play in that team now they miss him massively. He has a massive impact in that team.

I watched him at Old Trafford the other day… he was treating some Man United players like boys. That's how good he is, how comfortable he looks now. I've seen him on loan at Wigan playing centre- back, playing in midfield.

He's so versatile. His passing range is off the charts. Just his all-round general play, the composure, the physicality, his defending one-v-one. I think he's got everything."
