He plays mostly in central midfield but can also operate wide and enjoys running with the ball and taking on defenders. Equally capable of creating chances or converting them, he has also represented England Under-16s. 

He signed his scholarship deal in July 2019. Before a disruptive injury Haigh was enjoying a successfull first season in full-time football. Seven goals in 16 Under-18 appearances earned a debut in the UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup for the tricky midfielder.
