However, one fan clearly feels the club needs to strengthen elsewhere:

The young forward has been in impressive form this season, netting nine goals in seven outings for the under-18 side at Leeds, which has seen him come under close inspection by first team boss Thomas Christiansen.

He made his debut for the under-23 side last season and has continued to feature for them in the current campaign, while he has also been taking part in training sessions with the senior squad.
