Leeds United round-up: Willock tracked by Orta, Klich on Bielsa impact and Grot’s ‘step-up’

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Willock wanted

Leeds United’s recent scouting in Portugal has been due to their interest in Benfica striker Chris Willock. That is according to Scouts in Attendance, who suggest Leeds have been keeping an eye on the England under-20 forward.

The 20-year-old joined the Portuguese side in summer 2017, leaving Arsenal in the process.

He has since been a regular for the Benfica B team.

The Englishman is reportedly being tracked by Leeds director of football Victor Orta.

Klich on form

Mateusz Klich has been discussing his form with Leeds United this season. The Polish midfielder looked dead and buried at Elland Road, after being turfed out on loan by Thomas Christiansen.


However, he quickly became a regular under new boss Marcelo Bielsa. His impressive form has also seen him recalled to the Poland national team.

Speaking to TVN 24 in Poland he admitted that Bielsa showed him he could play at a higher level.

Grot’s step up

Forgotten Leeds man Jay-Roy Grot will also be in international action this week. The forward has received a call-up to the Netherlands under-21 side.

He has impressed sufficiently at loan club VVV Venlo to receive the call-up. He is quoted by Voetbal Primeur as stating the call-up will be a ‘step up’ in class.

Grot struggled in his first season at Leeds but remains on their radar for the future.
