Leeds United youngster Leif Davis has reportedly passed his medical at Bournemouth and will join the Championship side on loan for the 2021/22 season.
The Lowdown: Lack of playing time
The 21-year-old was limited to just two Premier League appearances last season, both of which came from the substitutes’ bench, with first team chances few and far between.
With Junior Firpo replacing Ezgjan Alioski as Leeds’ first-choice left-back, Davis’s first team opportunities could continue to be limited in 2021/22.
The Latest: Loan deal almost done
The deal is expected to be completed on Tuesday at some point, with the youngster spending the 2021/22 campaign on the south coast.
The Verdict: Good move for youngster
This is an ideal move for Davis, who needs to continue his development by earning regular starts at senior level.
The Championship is a tough league which tests young players, but it could earn him great experience, with the defender hopefully returning a more well-rounded footballer.
Hopefully Davis will eventually be a regular part of Leeds’ squad, and this upcoming spell away from Elland Road could prove to be invaluable if he gets regular senior game-time out of it.
