Leeds: Nixon shares McGurk update - Leeds United

It seems as if Wigan Athletic midfielder Sean McGurk may well join Leeds United this summer.

The Whites had a bid turned down for the 18-year-old during the January window, with Marcelo Bielsa looking to bolster the club’s Under-23 ranks.

However, McGurk’s contract with the Latics expires in the summer – meaning he could move to Elland Road over the coming months with a fee decided by a tribunal.

Reliable reporter Alan Nixon, who writes for The Sun, appeared to give a positive update regarding Leeds and McGurk on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

He was asked if he thinks McGurk will still come to Leeds this summer, to which he replied:

“Not heard different.”

It's quiz time! You've just got to tell us how much these Leeds players cost when they joined the club. Let's start with a nice easy one - club-record signing Rodrigo...

Transfer Tavern take

Should a deal for McGurk go through in the upcoming window, he could link up with former Wigan teammate Joe Gelhardt.

Gelhardt, on £16,500-a-week, has a close relationship with McGurk from the forward’s time at Wigan.

McGurk was described as ‘brilliant’ by Wigan youth coach Peter Murphy last year, with the latter heaping praise on the teenager for being ‘so effective’.

The attacking midfielder is yet to make his senior bow for Wigan, so should a deal materialise, he could well turn out for the Whites’ Under-23’s first, and perhaps him and Gelhardt could push through for a first-team berth together over the next couple of seasons.
