Leeds United remain locked in talks with Birmingham City for midfielder George Hall.
The Lowdown: Leeds links
The 18-year-old first caught the eye playing for England at youth level last November, with reports recently suggesting the Whites had firmed up their interest and were willing to make a seven-figure offer.
The Latest: ‘Remain in talks’
They claimed that the Whites ‘remain in talks’ with Birmingham for Hall, have discussed a move for PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo and still want to sign Perkins.
The Verdict: Just what the U23s need?
Hall played as a central and attacking midfielder, on the wing and as a centre-forward last season, so would offer plenty of versatility in Yorkshire. You’d expect that he’d initially link up with the U23s at Thorp Arch, who are fairly short of central midfield options.
One of the key midfielders for the U23s last season was Lewis Bate, who is expected to attract loan interest this summer, so Hall could be the perfect addition as Leeds continue to target the best young players in the country as well as bolstering their first-team squad with three additions so far.
