Cesar Araujo

Stats: 9 GP, 32 tackles and interceptions

I'm not overstating things when I say Cesar Araujo has been the best signing of the season. The Uruguayan midfielder is a terrier in midfielder, aggressively winning the ball back and occasionally getting stuck in with a late challenge or two.

He's also an adept progressive passer who helps the team play out of the back. He's everything you could want in a football player and he's still only 21 years old. The ceiling on this kid is very high.

Grade: A+
