Leeds: Whites eyeing Nathan Collins move

Leeds: Whites eyeing Nathan Collins move -Leeds United News

Leeds United and Newcastle are both keen on signing Burnley defender Nathan Collins this summer, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Whites working on second signing

Andrea Radrizzani, the 49ers Enterprises and Victor Orta have already made their first marquee signing under Jesse Marsch, with Brenden Aaronson penning a five-year deal on Thursday.

Aaronson has cost in the region of £25m and is the club’s first permanent senior midfield signing since Adam Forshaw back in 2018.

The Whites are now working on sealing a second signing ‘in the next few weeks’, according to Graham Smyth, and it appears as if Collins is on the radar at Elland Road.

The Latest: Collins interest

According to FI, both Leeds and Newcastle are plotting moves for Collins following Burnley’s relegation to the Championship.

Whites chiefs view the 21-year-old as a player with ‘huge’ potential after he made 22 appearances last season following a £12m move from Stoke City.

The Verdict: Needed?

You could argue that centre-back is an area where Leeds are well-stocked at this moment in time, so bolstering other areas of the squad could be wise before looking at a move for Collins.

Marsch has five centre-back options and is also able to call upon Luke Ayling for cover if required. The Leeds boss is still fairly light at full-back, in midfield and in attack, so perhaps looking to strengthen those areas first could be a shrewd move.

However, it appears as if they are now keen on Collins, so this could be one to watch closely over the coming weeks as Leeds look to get a head start on their summer business.
