BBC journalist gushes over Sonny Perkins after what he did for Leeds United u-21s

Adam Pope has been thrilled by the performance of Sonny Perkins for the Leeds United under-21s against Bolton on Tuesday.

While the summer signing from West Ham did not find the back of the net, as he has on numerous occasions this season, he still managed to stand out.

The Whites ended up losing 3-0 but the 20-year-old is proving with each game why he was signed by the hierarchy.

Pope, a BBC journalist, wrote on Twitter, “Perkins looking different gravy at times tonight with his neat skills & passing.
Robles races out of goal to clear. Moore clears goalbound chip away to keep it.”

First team debut soon?

Perkins has already made his senior debut for West Ham in the Europa League so it’s not like he has no taste of European football.

Although that was an appearance off the bench, one cannot deny the fact that he impressed at all levels and David Moyes to even be in contention to play.

We’re unsure what more Jesse Marsch wants from him to even give him a chance on the bench.

He surely will not like being overlooked for a first-team berth as he would at least make the bench had he not left the London Stadium in the summer.

We are unsure as to what assurances the club have given the youngster but there definitely must be some as he would run out of patience.

We’re just delighted that he is continuing to deliver for whichever team he’s playing for and that’s only good news for Leeds.
