Leeds United watching Sonny Perkins in Croatia

Leeds United watching Sonny Perkins in Croatia -Leeds United News

Leeds United are ‘tracking’ West Ham forward Sonny Perkins on international duty in a tournament in Croatia.

The Lowdown: Phil Hay reveal

The Whites have already added to their first-team ranks with moves for Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge.

However, Victor Orta still has his eye on academy additions, with Phil Hay revealing earlier this month that Leeds were lining up deals for both Perkins and Birmingham City’s George Hall.

Perkins, described as a ‘stand out’ player for the Hammers youth side, contributed to 16 goals in 24 appearances in Premier League 2 and the U18s Premier League last season.

The Latest: Joe Donnohue post

Leeds journalist Joe Donnohue took to Twitter on Monday afternoon, name-checking both Perkins and Hall, who have been representing England in a youth tournament over in Croatia.

He claimed the Whites are still ‘tracking’ the pair, who helped England win the four-team tournament.

The Verdict: Good signs

The Whites broke a Premier League record last season by handing eight teenagers their top-flight debuts, so Perkins and Hall could be the next to move to Elland Road and break through in the coming years.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Perkins has an impressive record at youth level, and with Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood establishing themselves in Marsch’s first-team squad last season, the West Ham man could become the Whites’ new U23 star in attack.

A new senior striker is also on the agenda, so it could well be a busy few months for Ortta and co in the transfer market.
