Leeds: Kevin Campbell excited by Ainsley Maitland-Niles transfer links -Leeds United

Former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell is excited about the prospect of Leeds United signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa could have a busy time of things in the next transfer window, improving his squad further and attempting to take the Whites to the next level.

One player with whom they have been linked is Maitland-Niles, who is currently on loan at West Brom from Arsenal, making 11 appearances for the Baggies this season.

Campbell tips Maitland-Niles to shine at Leeds

Someone who believes the five-cap England international would be a good signing for Leeds is Campbell, who talked up to the move to Football Insider:

“I think he is definitely someone who could fit into that team. He has good energy, a good engine and a lot of ability on the ball. The other big plus is that he can play in multiple positions, which we know Bielsa likes.

“I think that could be a great signing for Leeds.”

Transfer Tavern take

While Maitland-Niles hasn’t necessarily made the strides some hoped he would in recent years, he remains an exciting young players with lots of potential. Still only 23, he already has 121 appearances to his name for Arsenal, showing that he can cut it at a big club at a young age.

Furthermore, he is capable of thriving on either flank as a wing-back, or providing energy and quality in central midfield, with his versatility something which could appeal to Bielsa.

There may be a slight risk element in signing Maitland-Niles given his inability to inspire West Brom to escape their relegation rut, but he can be signed on a free transfer after his Arsenal deal expires this summer, which makes him worth a punt.
