Hull City's new signing Johan Ter Horst will cause Premier League defenders problems according to his Folkestone Invicta manager Neil Cugley

Johan Ter Horst has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of Luis Suarez when he begins his Premier League adventure with Hull City.

The diminutive 18-year-old has already scored 21 goals for Folkestone this season despite the physical attentions of the Ryman League’s most uncompromising defenders.

And Invicta manager Neil Cugley believes the little man will be a big hit when he turns professional in the summer under the guidance of Hull manager Steve Bruce.

Cugley said: "He runs at people with the ball and that’s what Hull like about him. They’ll develop him so he can carry that on. If you look at the Premier League, a lot of the forwards are shorter these days, like Suarez, and Johan’s a brave boy too.

"They’re not signing him for decoration. They’ve seen something in him they like. It’s not just a fee, it’s his wages over three years as well, so that’s a lot of money. They must think a lot of him.

"He scores goals and he turns people. That’s what people look for. There are a lot of smaller forwards in the bigger leagues because the pitches are so good and you can pass the ball. Teams need people who can get into dangerous areas."

Ter Horst will continue to play for Folkestone until the end of the season and he'll be hoping to add to his goal tally when they host Horsham on Saturday.
