Blackpool teenager Jake Daniels says he hopes Premier League players will follow his lead after becoming the first current British footballer in the professional men's game to come out as gay.
The 17-year-old striker says he now feels happier and more like himself.
Daniels recently made his senior debut for the EFL Championship club.
