Kenyan scouting

Leeds United will have scouts in attendance for an upcoming match between Kenyan side Gor Mahia and Everton.

Speaking to Goal, the Kenyan side’s manager Dylan Kerr, a former Leeds player, confirmed that Leeds will be attending to see if any of the Gor Mahia players have what it takes to make it in the English game.

 

He called it a chance for the players to ‘change their lives’.

Marriott bid

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has been discussing Leeds United’s summer interest in Jack Marriott.

He confirmed on Twitter that Leeds had made a verbal bid for the striker in January and despite a casual call in the summer, there was no follow up.

Marriott went on to join Derby County in a deal reported to be worth up to £5 million by the Daily Mail.
