Leeds United fans react as Callum Nicell heads out on trial

Leeds United have allowed the teenager to join Leicester City on trial.

Leeds United youngster Callum Nicell has been an odd absence from pre-season at Elland Road. The talented young Irishman has not been featuring for the club in a variety of fixtures and it is now clear why. 

As reported by Leeds Live, the 19-year-old is currently on trial at Premier League side Leicester City. Nicell played for the Leicester under-23s against Hednesford Town in a friendly on Friday as Leeds appear ready to let him go. 

It is quite a turnaround from 12 months ago. 

Nicell looked as though he might be the next breakthrough star from the Leeds United academy. After impressive form at Thorp Arch, he found himself among the senior squad under Paul Heckingbottom. 

He was on the bench for Championship clashes against Sunderland and Preston North End and was handed a new two-year deal at Leeds last September.

But the Republic of Ireland youth international has failed to build on that momentum and made no in-roads to the first-team last term. Leeds United are now seemingly prepared to lose him. 

It certainly has some fans disappointed on Twitter. Many felt that Nicell had what it takes to be a star at Leeds and feel letting him leave the club might be a hasty decision…
