David Norris believes Leeds United could make a late swoop for highly-rated Hibernian left-back Josh Doig.
Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa has strengthened his squad during the transfer window, with Junior Firpo joining from Barcelona for £13million, goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson arriving from Valerenga and Jack Harrison sealing a permanent switch from Manchester City.
Bielsa has claimed Leeds fans should not expect any more new recruits before the deadline passes at the end of the month.
Should Leeds sign Josh Doig?
But Norris reckons the Yorkshire club could still sign Doig, who has been on Bielsa’s radar since January, as he could be allowed to develop in the under-23s before challenging for a starting spot in the first-team.
The 19-year-old has made four appearances for Scottish Premiership outfit Hibs since the start of the season despite speculation over his future.
While he is still in the early stages of his career, Doig has already made 40 senior appearances for Hibs.
With the teen showing plenty of potential, Norris thinks Leeds should make their move before his price tag potentially increases significantly.
The former Leeds midfielder exclusively told The Transfer Tavern: “I think he is an option for the future. Should they sign him, I’d probably see him going into the under-23s for a period and then seeing how well he does.
“It would be up to him to make an impact and knock on the door of the first-team.”
