Kilmarnock hitman Brophy could not be expected to make instant impact at Leeds

It would be a huge ask for 22-year-old Kilmarnock striker Eamonn Brophy to make an instant impact in the Championship promotion race.

Leeds United are keeping their eye on Kilmarnock striker Eamonn Brophy as they look to add firepower to their automatic promotion push, according to TalkSport.

They report that Marcelo Bielsa is weighing up a move for the Scottish frontman, who has nine goals from 20 appearances across all competitions so far this season.

Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford have been dogged by injury problems so far, with Tyler Roberts only proving himself intermittently capable of filling the void.

But Brophy would face similar struggles to the ones Roberts faced when he made his move to Elland Road last January.

Roberts has shown this season that he is a talented player but it is so tough to do that as a relatively young man making a big move during the middle of a campaign.

 

Last season, Leeds needed someone who could come in and take on the mantle immediately; Roberts proved not to be that man and it would be a similar scenario for Brophy if he came in now.

Leeds should wait until the summer – at the earliest – before making swoop, and of course the landscape will be clearer then once they know which division they’ll be playing in next time around.
