Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be excited about what the future holds following their deal with the San Fransisco 49ers and will be expecting the club to make a number of additions in the summer.
The Whites sold a 10% minority shareholder stake to the NFL giants, which in turn gave them around £10 million to spend on players, which the locals in the bar will be hoping the club take full advantage of.
According to an exclusive report by the Daily Star, the Championship outfit have identified one of the game’s brightest stars emerging in Non-League football as a potential transfer target, namely AFC Fylde’s Serhat Tasdemir – a player who has been attracting interest from a host of clubs, including Leicester in the Premier League.
The 17-year-old has had an impressive breakout year in the National League in which he became AFC Flyde’s youngest ever goalscorer and earned a place in the division’s Under-23 Team of the Year.
Leeds certainly look to be adopting a forward-thinking approach to the transfer market since Andrea Radrizzani took charge of the club.
He has brought in a whole host of teenage stars that have been touted to have a bright future in the game and Tasdemir is another that could join them.
Whether Tasdemir would be handed an opportunity in the first-team anytime soon remains to be seen, however, Paul Heckingbottom has played a number of the club’s teenagers since he arrived in February, so the former Blackburn Rovers trainee could prove to be an attractive option.
