Leeds want to sign Irish sensation in January, exit ‘Fully Expected’ – report

Leeds United want to sign Irish sensation Sam Curtis ahead of Manchester United and Liverpool

Leeds United want to sign St Patrick’s Irish sensation Sam Curtis in January ahead of clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United, report 90min.


Writing on their website (22 November), the news outlet report that the 17-year-old right-back has attracted the attention of top clubs for his performances in the League or Ireland.


And sources claim that the Irish club “fully expect” him to leave during the off-season, with Leeds hopeful of convincing him to move to Elland Road ahead of the competition.


“90min understands that Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham and treble winners Manchester City are all keen to sign the teenager during the upcoming January transfer window,” they wrote.


“Liverpool have had recent success in dipping into the League of Ireland market, signing talented youngster Trent Kone-Doherty from Derry City last summer.


“Along with those Premier League clubs, Championship outfits Hull City, Middlesbrough and Leeds United all retain an interest in the full-back’s services too, while Scottish champions Celtic have also scouted the player recently.”




Leeds have been really good at finding young talent in recent years to improve their development squad and have even managed to flip it for a profit too.


The likes of Illan Meslier, Wilfried Gnonto, Crysencio Summerville and even Raphinha to a greater extent have been part of the strategy to buy low, develop and sell on at some point and it’s worked well.



The club recently signed Diego Monteiro for the same reason, and after losing Finlay Gorman to Manchester City and with clubs sniffing around Harry Gray we need to ensure that our group stays strong.


Curtis would be a real coup after his award winning season, and at 17 he is only going to continue to improve with more game time and he is going to get the most game time at Leeds compared to the other interested parties.


It would be a great bit of business to help secure the future of the club, and beating those top clubs to his signature would show that we’re really pushing in the right direction.
