The Lowdown: Ebiowei profiled
Ebiowei is 18 years of age and can play anywhere across the front three. He has represented both England and Holland at youth international level and made the move to Derby from Scottish giants Rangers last year.
Derby will be playing in League One next season, and it looks as if the Whites are eyeing up a move for the versatile attacker, who coach Justin Walker said ‘has got that little bit of X-factor’.
The Latest: Leeds interest
The Sun shared a story on Sunday lunchtime regarding Ebiowei’s future. They claimed that it is unlikely the teenager will stay at Derby, with Leeds, Fulham and Tottenham all weighing up a summer move.
RB Leipzig and Crystal Palace are also name-checked with an interest, with Ebiowei’s contract set to expire next month.

The Verdict: Shrewd move?
Leeds have previous when it comes to picking up a talented attacker from a side struggling off the pitch financially when they signed Joe Gelhardt from Wigan, so it looks as if Ebiowei could follow suit with a move to Elland Road.
The Derby talent already has first-team experience in the second tier and is a man in demand, making a possible deal a smart one.
Should a transfer to Yorkshire go through, you’d expect the winger will go into the club’s Under-23 ranks to start with, aiming to break into Jesse Marsch’s first-team squad over time, regardless of what division they are in.
