Leeds United fans have been discussing the potential of a new signing this week.

The Athletic’s Phil Hay dropped a huge story on Thursday claiming that the west Yorkshiremen were in advanced talks with 16-year-old Crystal Palace starlet Jadan Raymond.

He’s set to leave the Premier League outfit next week after rejecting their offer of a professional deal and the Whites appear to be in the running to land him alongside Portuguese top-flight side Vitoria Guimaraes.

This emerging development has sparked a reaction from plenty of the Elland Road faithful on Twitter.

Some have taken a liking to signing the teenager, claiming he would be a good talent to have within the youth setup whilst others have their doubts, suggesting that he’s merely going to be another Ian Poveda.

The report goes on to reveal that Raymond is one of the most highly-regarded youngsters within the Eagles’ academy ranks, so United could be smart to poach him from their grasp this summer.

They are likely to have to pay ยฃ1m in compensation, too.

Here’s how the rest of the fanbase have reacted…
