A 19-year-old forward Temenuzhkov has made his debut with the senior team already. He was introduced as a substitute for 11 minutes of a third-round defeat by QPR last season.

He spent last season with the club’s Under-23 ranks and helped Carlos Corberan’s team towards a stunning double.

Some Leeds fans certainly wouldn’t be against the idea, reacting to the tweet as follows:
