Leeds fans react as they are linked with attacker Gyrano Kerk

Leeds United are being linked with FC Utrecht attacker Gyrano Kerk – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded with major positivity to the speculation by suggesting he could be a great addition for them.

According to Dutch publication De Telegraaf, the Whites are closing in on a deal to sign the 24-year-old from Eredivisie club FC Utrecht.

It is understood that Marcelo Bielsa’s team are approaching an agreement for the versatile attacker, who enjoyed a brilliant individual campaign last year.

The report states that Leeds are now leading the race to sign him ahead of Italian sides Cagliari and Hellas Verona, with FC Utrecht valuing him at around £9.1million.

Kerk has spent his entire club career in homeland Holland so far and has become one of the most exciting young talents in recent years in the Eredivisie, scoring 11 goals and supplied 12 assists across all competition last season,

Perhaps most importantly to Bielsa, Kerk has the ability to play in various attacking positions and the speed machine can be used as either a winger or centre-forward.

Leeds have two settled starting wingers in Jack Harrison and Helder Costa right now, but both get through so much work in the Bielsa system and it’s an area they could do with options.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media believe that the wide man could be a valuable signing for the squad, as they continue to be extremely active in the transfer market and improve following their return to the Premier League.
