Marcus Tavernier made his 100th appearance in all competitions for Middlesbrough over the weekend as Neil Warnock’s side lost 2-1 to Brentford – and Leeds United supporters have reacted on Twitter amid reports the Whites are interested.
Tavernier, 21, is quickly emerging as one of the brightest talents in Championship football at the moment – with the younger brother of Rangers captain James Tavernier already having a hand in 24 goals during his 100 outings.
Certainly, he has caught the eye of Premier League suitors. Teamtalk say that Leeds are keeping tabs on the versatile midfielder – who has played on both flanks, in central midfield and as a 10 this season. Leeds are not the only side interested.
The report claims Leicester, Wolves and Everton have all registered their interest in the young midfielder – who already has 15 caps for England’s Under-20 side. Leeds are supposedly on the lookout for a midfielder.
Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to Crawley proved as much. The Whites lacked anything that gave them real drive from the middle of the park. Tavernier seemingly fits the profile of Bielsa – versatile, plenty of stamina and enormous resale value.
Leeds supporters have responded on Twitter to reports that the Whites are interested in nabbing Tavernier before the end of the month – and many feel he would be a good signing for the club.
