MOT View: Time for Leeds to pull off another transfer cracker by beating PL clubs to 17y/o
Leeds United have done well in the transfer market in recent weeks having all but secured the signing of in-demand striker Charlie Allen.
Allen was eyed up by Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Rangers but Leeds beat them all to the punch with terms Football Insider claiming that personal terms have been agreed with the Northern Ireland youth international.
Now it is time for Leeds to pull off another swoop to sign a young player with TeamTalk claiming that the Whites are hot on the heels of 17-year-old Hartlepool defender Harrison Webster.
Again, Leeds are up against a clutch of top clubs in their pursuit of Webster.
TeamTalk reports that Wolves, Nottingham Forest, Burnley, Bristol City and Sunderland are also keen on the teenager, who plays on the left-hand side of the defence.

If Leeds can beat Man United and European champions Liverpool to signing Allen then surely they can beat Wolves and Burnley to signing Webster?
You would hope so anyway because Webster seems like a decent prospect based on the number of clubs interested in him and the fact that it never hurts to have more exciting young players on the books at Elland Road.
