EXPERIENCED international defender Jason De Vos today predicted a glittering future for Ipswich Town midfielder Owen Garvan.
“Owen is 18 but already playing like a 30-year-old,” said De Vos, who was captain at Wolves on Saturday when the Irish lad put in another outstanding performance.
Just outshone by the impeccable Darren Currie for the man of the match accolade, Garvan came back from a one-game suspension to help run a Championship game that the Blues were unlucky to lose.
“If I was a betting man I would predict that Owen will go all the way,” added De Vos, who gave another powerful display at the back for the depleted Blues.
“He possesses everything that a top player needs and is a fierce competitor.

“You need to have a nasty streak in your make-up and Owen has that as well.
“He has the necessary nastiness about him to go right to the top.”
De Vos also praised Currie. “Darren is the most skilful midfielder in the Championship and he has been proving it in recent weeks.
“It was frustrating to lose 1-0 as we were getting our blocks in and dealing with what Wolves had to offer.
“It was clever play by Jeremie Aliadiere to win the penalty that won the points. Sito Castro was outstanding otherwise and the better side ended up with nothing.
“We must now go out and win our remaining league games - we are good enough if we don't run out of players through injury.”
