I got him for 19 Tokens in Icon Swaps and going to share my honest opinion with you:
I played him as CDM next to Prime Essien in 4231 the last Weekend League.
Pace: He does not feel as fast as f. ex. Kante or Essien, but with a shadow this guy is able to chase down most of the strikers.
Shooting: He is able to score some pretty sick goals (98 Shot Power, 99 Long Shots) and also at lower distances this guy is pretty reliable for a CDM.
Passing: His Short Passes are not special, but his Forward Passes are really good and precise most of the time.
Dribbling: Due to 76 Balance and 1,85 m Height, he does not feel as smooth as Essien f. ex., but his dribbling is still ok.
Defending + Strength: With a shadow, 89 Strength + his height he wins most of the duels.
Stamina: 95 Stamina wont let him down after 90 Minutes, even tho he is running all the time because of his Workrates and Aggression.
Conclusion: If you are thinking about getting him in Icon Swaps, do it.
If you are thinking about buying him for 1.3 Million (PS4) you can do it, but I think you can also get other sick CDMs even for less money. (especially TOTS)
