Jack Clarke and Mallik Wilks could form a frightening attacking partnership for Leeds United for years to come

Mallik Wilks is thriving on loan at Doncaster Rovers.

The future looks bright for Leeds United with plenty of youngsters currently in and around the first-team.

Jack Clarke is the prime example, breaking into the first-team this season and establishing himself as a regular under Marcelo Bielsa.

The 18-year-old operates on either wing and has provided two goals and two assists in his debut season in the Championship.

But there is another Leeds youngster who is catching the eye with some exciting performances from the wing.

Mallik Wilks is currently out on loan at Doncaster Rovers and he is firing them into contention for promotion.

With pace, power and a hunger for goals, the Leeds starlet racked up his 15th goal of the season in Saturday’s win over Walsall.

Showcasing his sublime skill, Wilks deceived his marker before sprinting into the box and producing a composed finish.

As well as scoring 15 times, Wilks has also managed seven assists for his team-mates, directly contributing to 22 goals this season.

With Wilks on the right and Clarke on the left, Leeds have a potentially frightening attacking partnership for the future.

Bielsa believes in promoting his youth players if he feels they are ready and Wilks could be the next first-team star.
