Leeds: Whites have watched Daryl Dike -Leeds United

Leeds United have watched American forward Daryl Dike closely, according to a report from TEAMtalk.

The story claims that Dike, currently on loan at Barnsley from Major League Soccer side Orlando City, has also been monitored by Everton, Newcastle, West Ham and Wolves.

Chelsea and Manchester United also keen

Barnsley have the option to make Dike’s move to Oakwell permanent in the summer, however, it would cost the Tykes £17m – a deal that appears to hinge on the club’s push for promotion to the top flight.

Will Leeds be back in Europe in the next five years?

YES

YES

NO

NO

Chelsea and Manchester United are also impressed by the 20-year-old, who has netted five Championship goals in just 715 minutes of second-tier action.

It's quiz time! You've just got to tell us how much these Leeds players cost when they joined the club. Let's start with a nice easy one - club-record signing Rodrigo...

Transfer Tavern take

Leeds have an impressive record of securing some talented attacking youngsters in recent years.

Winger Ian Poveda has been in and around Marcelo Bielsa’s matchday squad this season after joining from Manchester City last January.

The Whites also added forward Joe Gelhardt over the summer from Wigan, with the youngster the top scorer in Premier League 2 Division 2 with 11 goals.

Sam Greenwood was another summer addition from Arsenal, with the 19-year-old scoring eight goals in 15 Premier League 2 fixtures.

Dike, on £4,400-a-week, would cost a lot more than the £900,000 fee Leeds paid for Gelhardt and the £1.53m for Greenwood, but it seems as if the American has the talent to thrive at the top level, given the amount of recent Premier League interest.
