Jeremiah Mullen sends reminder to Leeds United boss Daniel Farke with Scotland Under-21 call-up

Leeds United have plenty of exciting youngsters among their ranks, many of which are out on loan from Elland Road as they look to gain vital experience.

But one that has remained in West Yorkshire this season is Jeremiah Mullen, with the young centre-back currently plying his trade for the Leeds Under-21 side.

The 19-year-old has made six Premier League 2 appearances in the current campaign, with the club having a mixed start thanks to their three wins and three losses so far.

On an individual level, however, Mullen has impressed, with the defender now receiving a call-up to the Scotland Under-21 squad, as per the official Scotland National Team Twitter account (2 October).

The teenager has retained his place in the setup, having played the entire 90 minutes in their Euro 2025 qualifying defeat to Spain last month.

The nation now have the chance to pick up their first points of the campaign when they take on Hungary and Malta, with both games taking place at Motherwell’s Fir Park later this month.

Mullen might not exactly be in the thoughts of Leeds boss Daniel Farke at this moment in time, but he is certainly highly thought of at the club, having made the bench against Manchester United, West Ham and Tottenham in the Premier League last season.

The manager has the likes of Liam Cooper, Pascal Struijk, Joe Rodon and Charlie Cresswell at his disposal in that area, but an international call-up can only be a major positive in Mullen’s first-team prospects at some point this season.

If he can impress for his nation this month and continue to impress in the Premier League 2, that first-team debut may just arrive sooner rather than later.
