‘Big mistake’ – Leeds fans discuss Mallik Wilks’ potential exit

Mallik Wilks could move to Barnsley or Hull.

Leeds United youngster Mallik Wilks is being linked with a summer exit. He has just returned from a profitable loan spell at Doncaster Rovers but his future is unclear.

According to The Yorkshire Post, Barnsley and Hull City both want to tempt him across Yorkshire. It is unclear whether this would be another loan deal or a permanent move.

Grant McCann is the new Hull manager and he wants to reunite with Wilks if Kamil Grosicki and Jarrod Bowen depart. The pair worked together at Doncaster last season, helping Rovers to the play-off semi-finals.

Wilks was a major part of Doncaster’s success. Operating on the right flank and cutting inside onto his favoured left foot, Wilks fired in 16 goals and 12 assists for the League One side.

This led to talk that Leeds would give Wilks a chance. But the Whites have signed Helder Costa and Jack Harrison on loan, as well as bringing Jack Clarke back on loan after he joined Tottenham.

Wilks could be deemed surplus to requirements this summer. But many Leeds fans believe that the club would make a mistake if they let the 20-year-old go. Here are some of the best tweets.
