Leeds: Whites youngster Archie Gray wanted by Manchester City

Leeds: Whites youngster Archie Gray wanted by Manchester City -Leeds United News

Premier League champions Manchester City are interested in signing Leeds United youngster Archie Gray, according to reliable journalist Phil Hay.

The Lowdown: An exciting prospect

The 16-year-old is arguably one of the most exciting youth products at Elland Road currently, with big things expected of him in the future.

Gray has already registered three assists for Leeds’ Under-21s, despite not being close to that age bracket yet, while Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp has described him as a ‘future England star’.

The teenager is not yet at the age to sign a professional contract with the Whites, however, and a new update suggests they could struggle to keep hold of him.

The Latest: Man City eye up move

According to The Athletic‘s Hay, City are eyeing up a move for Gray, who has become part of Jesse Marsch’s first-team squad during pre-season and the start of the 2022/23 campaign.

Pep Guardiola’s side are thought to be one of a host of top clubs watching the midfielder.

The Verdict: Worrying update

Losing promising youngsters is always concerning for any team and that is no different with Leeds and Gray, with the Englishman hopefully staying put at Elland Road for many years.

The lure of joining a City side littered with world-class players and one of the all-time great managers could be too great to turn down, however, and Gray could feel his game could go up another notch there.

There is the risk that Gray ends up being lost amongst a group of elite players and isn’t afforded the chance to grow however, so staying put in Yorkshire at least for now could make more sense.

Leeds fans will have their fingers crossed.
