Niklas Haugland set for Leeds medical

Leeds United are close to completing another deal this summer as Marcelo Bielsa continues to add to his squad.

According to an exclusive by Football Insider, the Whites are thought to be on the verge of adding Niklas Haugland to their ranks, with the player expected to undergo a medical.

The Norwegian teenager is highly-rated and it is understood the Elland Road outfit have beaten the likes of Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Red Ball Salzburg to his signature.

The 16-year-old clearly did enough to impress those at Leeds following a trial he had earlier in the summer with the Under-18’s and they have decided to push on with a move for the striker.

It is understood that he has waited to make a decision on his future, however, with the competition involved for his name, it appears Leeds may have just pulled off a huge coup for Haugland.

The Verdict:

The 16-year-old is thought to be incredibly skilful and is definitely a man to keep an eye on in the future.

Leeds have spent a lot of time and effort in reinvesting for their future with younger talents and Haugland is just the latest name to be added to their developmental ranks.

Having beaten the likes of Munich and Milan to his signing, the Elland Road outfit will be delighted and will be keeping a close eye on the way he develops during his time with the club.
