Leeds United are looking to sign Blackburn Rovers’ Luke Brennan as they continue to identify younger players to come to the club.
The Whites have put a real focus on signing talented teenagers in the past few years, with the likes of Leif Davis, Jordan Stevens and Mateusz Bogusz just some of the names who have come to Thorp Arch in the past. And, that theme is set to continue, with the Yorkshire outfit beating the likes of Liverpool and Rangers to Linfield’s Charlie Allen.
He may not be the only one through the door as well, with Football Insider claiming that Brennan is a target for Leeds. The 18-year-old can play down either flank but he has starred down the left for Rovers this season, with his form helping the team to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals.
Will Leeds United be playing in the Premier League next season?
In the U18 league, Brennan has shone too, registering seven assists in 12 games and grabbing a goal. That has seen the winger get called up to the U23 side and he had been involved with the higher group regularly prior to this enforced break.
Whether the player would be interested in the move remains to be seen, although the prospect of linking up with a Premier League club may appeal and that’s what Leeds will hope to be at the end of the season. They are currently seven points clear of third-placed Fulham in the Championship with nine games to play, so they are in a commanding position ahead of a potential restart next month.
