Leeds should sign this available Premier League midfielder in January
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Leeds should attempt a January loan move for Leicester outcast Bartosz Kapustka.
The 19-year-old has still not made his senior Leicester debut since moving to the King Power Stadium in the summer for £7.5million.
He has been named on the bench on just two occasions by manager Claudio Ranieri and his omission from the first-team is a huge surprise.
Garry Monk should plot a loan move for the youngster as he appears unlikely to break into the Leicester side in the immediate future.
Leeds are currently fifth-placed in the table and chasing a play-off spot this season, so adding to their squad in the transfer window could be crucial.

Kapustka appears to be an ideal player to feature in the Premier League and the Whites should look to capitalise on Leicester’s snub, with the midfielder surely a great option for the Championship.
The Poland international announced himself at the Euros by making four appearance and looking an extremely tricky winger.
The youngster showed great intelligence for his nation and earned his move to the Premier League.
He has the potential to be a fantastic player at Elland Road if he can be persuaded to join and Leeds’ current loan stars Pontus Jansson and Hadi Sacko are a great example that the deals can be highly successful.
Kapustka showed his qualities last season with Polish side Cracovia, scoring five goals and supplying 10 assists in 35 appearances.
Leeds are currently lacking width in their team as Kemar Roofe and Souleymane Doukara have both filled in to cover the wide role.
Right winger Sacko is proving to be extremely effective this season and Kapustka could provide a similar role on the opposite wing.
