MOT View: Impressive stats prove that PL 18y/o could be inspired move amid reported Leeds hunt

Leeds United will most likely be forced to utilise the loan market once again this season due to finances at Elland Road.

The financial fair play rules have come to light much-more frequently in recent years for Championship clubs, and Andrea Radrizzani has to be smart with his spending.

Goal recently reported that Leeds had set their sights on Liverpool duo Rhian Brewster and Curtis Jones in January in a potential double loan swoop.

This is Anfield have recently done insight into the Reds’ academy numbers from 2019, and they highlight one big factor.

It shows just how impressive Jones has been for the youngsters. Despite being a midfielder, the 18-year-old has managed the most goals (8) as well as the most assists (7) in their entire squad.

That proves that it could be a smart move to bring the youngster to Elland Road, as he has also managed to shine in the senior side in a number of different competitions.

With it being confirmed that Pablo Hernandez will miss a month of action in the Championship, it could be a smart decision to bring in a young playmaker like Jones at the beginning of January to add an extra option.

These impressive numbers prove that it could be an inspired move by Victor Orta should he be able to negotiate a move with Liverpool.
