Out of the January transfers that Gianfranco Zola made, a lot of people would pick out Cheick Keita as the stand out one and it’s clear that he’s got bags of potential.

But, the man that has slotted nicely into the side and been a permanent fixture since joining from Middlesbrough is Emilio Nsue.

Despite the horrendous run under the Italian, Nsue is a player that has impressed me. Boro fans said that we would love him and they weren’t wrong.

At first, I had my doubts about him defensively and even more so when he played in a back four under Harry Redknapp.

However, he’s looked extremely capable in that back four alongside Michael Morrison, Ryan Shotton and Jonathan Grounds.

The four together look solid and there is a perfect balance there with Nsue being the one that can provide us with an attacking outlet.

He works his socks off down that right hand side, up and down the touch line throughout the 90 minutes and his performances in the last few games mustn’t go unnoticed.

Looking ahead, he’s a player that we can certainly move forward with and he already looks to have cemented that right back spot and made it his own.

He gained promotion with Boro last year so he also has the experience and knows what it takes to get out of this division.

Although this season didn’t plan out quite how we wanted it to, far from it in fact, we can look towards next season hopefully under Redknapp where a promotion push would be the target.

Nsue is a player that most Championship clubs would like to have in their team and we`re very lucky to have him so for all that went wrong for Zola at Blues, the signing of the Guinea international looks to have paid off.

Ain’t nobody, like Nsue!
