The 22-year-old central defender has been extremely impressive during the loan spell having featured in every game for the Championship side this term (

His performances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side have reportedly brought him to the attention of a number Premier League clubs with Chelsea and Liverpool also said to be keen on him.

It is claimed that Spurs, Chelsea and Liverpool have all sent scouts to watch the youngster in action for Leeds recently and have been left impressed with what they have seen.
