Former Leeds United player David Norris believes that Lewis O’Brien would be a good signing for the club.
The Huddersfield Town player has been linked with a move across Yorkshire this summer and Football Insider reported the other day that Leeds were going to hold fresh talks over a possible deal for O’Brien.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that both clubs weren’t a million miles apart in their valuation for the player this week (August 10), and so with this news it’s possible a deal maybe edging closer.
O’Brien was a key player for Huddersfield last season, featuring 42 times for the Terriers in the Championship, scoring three goals and assisting a further three and with this it took his overall tally throughout his Huddersfield Town career, to 82 appearances, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.
Former Leeds player Norris believes that O’Brien would be a good signing for the club, telling Transfer Tavern: “Yeah, another good one. Whether it inspires Leeds fans, like I say I do think they’re looking for one big signing but someone like that who’s doing well, got potential, looks like he could suit the Leeds way, I think on paper it would still be a good signing.”
If the Whites do sign O’Brien, then he would be Leeds’ fifth summer signing after Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison, Lewis Bate, and Kristoffer Klaesson have all arrived at Elland Road during this transfer window.
