MOT View: Sublime strike from reported Leeds target shows why he would be wonderful signing

Leeds United might not be done in the transfer market just yet. 

According to its live transfer blog on Saturday night (22.47), the Mirror have reported that the Whites are close to a £10 million agreement with FC Utrecht for winger Gyrano Kerk.

It is even suggested that a deal could be announced next week.

But what sort of player would Leeds be getting if they did make a move for the 24-year-old wide man?

The Dutchman is a lethally quick proposition who hit 11 goals and 12 assists in his home country last season.

Moreover, over the course of his career, he has averaged 9.62 dribbles per game, as per Wyscout.

Compare that to Jack Harrison (6.4 dribbles)and Helder Costa (6.77 dribbles), and it’s clear that he is an old-fashioned wide man with a really penchant for getting at his full-back and wreaking havoc.

But a quick look at Kerk in action proves that he is so much more than just a speed demon.

Take this goal he scored for Utrecht back in March as an example.

Kerk dispossesses his man just inside the opposition half, and immediately his first thought is to get his head down and run at goal.

Kerk carries the ball so well, almost gliding across the turf.

It’s clear that he is immensely comfortable in possession, but he also has an eye for the spectacular.

Rather than trying to weave his way through the forest of bodies in front of him, the wide man shapes to shoot from a hugely ambitious range.

And his self-belief is more than vindicated.

His effort arrows into the bottom corner, nestling just beyond the keeper’s grasp.

It truly is a sublime effort, and one that illustrates perfectly just how much quality and flair the winger oozes.

If Leeds really are in for him, we think he could prove to be a wonderful acquisition.
