Youth career

Josh is a versatile midfielder most at home in the centre of the team where he can get on the ball regularly. He can play out wide or higher up behind a striker if needed. He takes set pieces and penalties too.

Josh is neat, tidy and creative, reflected in the fact he finished the 2013/14 season as the Manchester United Under-18 side's leading assister. Although his season was disrupted by an injury, he finished the campaign in the Under-21 side, featuring on the bench on at least a half a dozen occasions.

In 2014/15 Josh was been a regular in the Under-21 side when fit and continued to be selected in the side in the 2015/16 season.

With a threadbare Under-23 squad for the 2016/17 season, Josh stepped up at various points to lead the attacking threat. He was able to score 10 goals including a hat-trick against Tottenham in the final game of the campaign. He was rewarded with a First Team debut against Crystal Palace and he continued his fine goalscoring form by scoring in that game too.

Josh had the offer of a new contract from the club at the end of the 2016/17 season but opted to sign for Preston North End on a free instead.
