Mills tips Bielsa to take 'quality' Reed to another level as Leeds raid reported
Harrison Reed is already a quality player but he can get even better under the tutelage of Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.
That is according to ex-Whites defender Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the Daily Mail reported on 9th June that Leeds are set to swoop for Reed.
The defensive midfielder signed a four-year deal when he joined Fulham permanently from Southampton last summer.
The 26-year-old finished third in Fulham’s Player of the Season vote and performed strongly across his 33 appearances despite the Cottagers’ relegation.
Mills has been impressed with Reed and argues that he could reach dizzy new heights under Bielsa’s wing.
“I think he’s certainly a quality player,” he told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“If Bielsa has got his eye on bringing someone in, you’re pretty sure he’s going to improve them and make them better.
“As long as you’ve got the basis of him as a player, you’ve got to put the faith in Bielsa to think whoever he brings in is going to improve them and take them to another level.
“There are one or two signings that haven’t worked out for Bielsa. But in the main, he’s been very, very good. He’s taken raw talent and made that player better.”
Stuart Dallas and Kalvin Phillips are two among several Leeds aces who Bielsa has been credited with bringing on leaps and bounds.
Phillips is now an eight-cap England international and Dallas was named Leeds’ Player of the Season in 2020-21.
