“He’s got a lot of talent, you can see he’s got a big future if Leeds are signing him.
“I reckon he’ll be one that’s put straight into the first team to train and try and get some game time.
“That’s what you want as a club, you want to sign young players. I think it’s a great signing for Leeds.
“Maybe it’s a situation where Birmingham City need the money so you can understand it on both parts.
“But the Birmingham City academy is good, they’ve had Bellingham and now Miller. It’s good that their academy is creating the players.
“It’s a lot of money so they must see something in him. They must see him as part of the first team because you don’t pay that money just for someone to stay in the Under-23s, you pay that for someone who can break into the first team.
“So, yes, great signing and I hope he does well for the club.”
