Leeds United lead race to sign George Hall

Leeds United are leading the race to sign Birmingham City whizkid George Hall in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to the print edition of The Sun, as relayed by The Boot Room, Leeds United are in the driver’s seat in the race to sign George Hall. The Premier League outfit were keen on a move for the Birmingham City youngster last summer, but the player ended up remaining at the club.

This time around, Leeds have intensified their pursuit of Hall, who is likely to join the Whites at the end of the season. Hall is currently regarded as one of the most gifted players to come out of the Birmingham academy, which has already produced talents such as Jude Bellingham, Jobe Bellingham, and Amari Miller.

In fact, Leeds United were the club that signed Miller last summer. The further addition of someone like Hall could be indicative of the club’s plans to strengthen their core in the youth department.

Indeed, the club have done a fantastic job of roping in talents from across the UK, with the likes of Lewis Bate, Sam Greenwood and Joe Gelhardt joining Leeds United.

Gelhardt has already become an exciting Premier League prospect, making quite an impression with his cameos off the bench. Greenwood has also made an impact lately and consistently features in Leeds’ matchday squad, along with Crysencio Summerville.

The Whites expect the likes of Bates and Miller to follow suit in the coming years. And in George Hall, they could find themselves another star talent who has what it takes to perform at the highest level of football.

An attacking midfielder by trade, Hall is yet to make his professional breakthrough at Birmingham City. But at the age of just 17, he has impressed the onlookers with his performances in the reserve squad as well as the U18 Premier League, essentially making him one of the most sought-after prospects in the second division.

Hall is only expected to improve during the remainder of the campaign before he switches to Leeds United next season. The Premier League outfit will be able to offer a better training facility to the 17-year-old, and given Jesse Marsch’s strong record of nurturing talents, next season could be an interesting one for youngsters at Leeds United.
