Leeds United have made a deadline day offer for West Ham’s Harrison Ashby.
The Lowdown: Ashby profiled
The 20-year-old is primarily a right-back who can also line out at centre-back. The Scotland under-21 international has been hailed as ‘fearless’ by West Ham podcaster Sam Delaney and is under the same agency as Leeds forward Luis Sinisterra.
The Latest: Leeds bid
Nixon added that the player is open to leaving the London Stadium and would get more game-time with the Whites.
The Verdict: Promising
Ashby sounds like an exciting youngster who can play in two defensive positions. The Whites have already added to their academy ranks this summer by bringing in Darko Gyabi from Manchester City and Sonny Perkins from West Ham, so the Scottish gem could be another shrewd long-term addition.
Will Leeds sign a forward in the final days of the window?
Yes, Orta will work his magic!
No, don't think so!
However, Leeds’ priority should be a new forward, and it looks as if Marseille striker Bamba Dieng is their new priority first-team target, meaning it could be a frantic final few hours for Andrea Radrizzani, Victor Ort and co at Elland Road.
