I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'anybody' is the definition.
Both the definition and answer are singular nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'young but not useless' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'young' could be 'y' and 'y' is present in the answer.
'not' could be 'o' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'o' is located in the answer.
A single letter 'u' remains which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
