Leeds United: Marcus Tavernier links emerge

Leeds United: Marcus Tavernier links emerge -Leeds United

Leeds are thought to be considering a move for Middlesbrough’s Marcus Tavernier in January, according to TEAMtalk.

The Lowdown: Tavernier profiled

Tavernier, who was born in Leeds, is 22 years of age and currently holds a career-high Transfermarkt valuation of £2.7m.

He has made 15 appearances for Middlesbrough this season in six different areas of the pitch, highlighting his versatility and bringing his total showings for Boro to 122.

Primarily a left midfielder, most of Tavernier’s appearances during the current campaign have come as a right-winger, and it seems this ability to add depth in multiple positions is catching the eye at Elland Road.

The Latest: Whites considering January move

TEAMtalk shared a report on Tuesday lunchtime, suggesting the Whites are considering a winter window move for Tavernier, with Victor Orta a confirmed fan of the player labelled as ‘special’ by Neil Warnock.

Brighton, Burnley and Southampton have been watching the Englishman for some time, but it seems as if Leeds are now in the race for Tavernier’s services.

The Verdict: Dallas 2.0?

Should Leeds secure Tavernier’s services in the New Year, they could have another Stuart Dallas on their hands.

The Northern Ireland international has turned out in nine different positions during his career – the same number as Tavernier who is still in the early stages of his career.

Marcelo Bielsa also likes to run with a small squad, so bringing in a player as versatile as Dallas could be of interest to the Argentine, who could then look to coach Tavernier in multiple positions.
