The Lowdown: Leeds links
The Whites have been hard at work bolstering Jesse Marsch’s first team ranks this summer, spending £95m on six players. One of those is young midfielder Darko Gyabi, who is part of a 26-man Leeds squad in Australia after joining from Manchester City.
More youngsters like Gyabi could arrive at Thorp Arch, though, with Perkins first linked with a move to Yorkshire last month. Leeds were thought to be lining up a deal for the 18-year-old, who officially left the London Stadium earlier this month.
The Latest: Perkins update
He claimed that ‘Perkins looks most likely to join Leeds’ after his West Ham departure, with the ‘stand out’ player (in the words of Ex) even appearing to follow the Whites on Instagram in recent days.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
Therefore, Leeds could be about to secure a versatile future star in Perkins, so hopefully, ExWHUemployee’s claim regarding a move to the Whites is accurate.
