North-East club set to release teen duo wanted by Leeds, one had Thorp Arch trial - reports

Leeds United have been handed the chance to pounce upon two players after it was decided that Hartlepool are set to release them, according to TeamTalk.

The news outlet claims that Leeds are interested in full-back Harrison Webster and midfielder Connor Rennison, who have both reached the end of their deals in the North-East and are due to become free agents.

Leeds are joined by Nottingham Forest and Wolves in pursuing Webster while the Whites are understood to be battling Barnsley and Charlton for Rennison.

National League club Hartlepool are not exactly well known for producing top young talent but that does not mean that Leeds shouldn’t take a closer look at players like Webster and Rennison, who might become the latest additions to the youth ranks at Elland Road.

Webster has already had a trial at Thorp Arch [TeamTalk] and the fact they are still pursuing the defender suggests he did a good enough job when he had the chance to train in West Yorkshire.

There is not a lot of information about Webster and Rennison on the web but based on the number of clubs reportedly pursuing them, they do seem to have some talent.

It could be well worth Leeds’ time to have Webster back for another trial, as well as Rennison, ahead of next season starting.

They’re unlikely to cost much money at all so let’s see how this one pans out.
