Leeds teenager gets Instagram message from Mesut Ozil, after agent move

Not a headline you will read regularly. But Leeds United teenager Ben Andreucci has been applauded by Mesut Ozil on Instagram. The Scottish youngster has been taken on by football representative agency Family and Football. Ozil reacted to the news that Leeds starlet Andreucci had joined.

Andreucci is certainly impressing. At just 16, the Leeds teenager has already played regularly for the club’s Under-18 side. He is thought of highly among the Elland Road coaching staff – at Thorp Arch. He has also represented Scotland at youth level, but could also represent both England or Ireland.

The youngster will be looking to break into the 18’s side on a regular basis this season – and even for the 23’s under Mark Jackson. But clearly, he is a future star and Ozil’s Family and Football have have got him on board. They confirmed the arrival of Andreucci on instagram.

What has Ozil said to Leeds talent Andreucci?

Many big names are on the books at Family and Football. Ozil, obviously, is the biggest name. Everton’s Cenk Tosun is likely to be on the move this summer and he is a client, as is Kieran Gibbs. He has just joined David Beckham’s Inter Miami, while ex-Arsenal man Lucas Perez is also a client.

Ozil responded to the post on Instagram. Like many other new additions to the agency, Ozil welcomed Andreucci to Family and Football.

In other Leeds transfer news aside from Ozil and Andreucci, a source has told Scottish media that Chelsea would be open to loaning a player to Leeds.
