Leeds United should watch Cameron John ahead of potential January loan swoop

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly willing to let talented youngster Cameron John leave on loan.

And he would be an ideal short-term solution for Leeds United, given their current injury situation at the back.

According to The Daily Mail, Wolves are open to the idea of letting John leave on loan to gain experience.

The teenage centre-back is regarded as one of the club’s hottest young prospects but game time is hard to come by at Molineux.

After rejecting a £500,000 bid in the summer and tying John down to a new two-year deal, Wolves will want their academy starlet to prove his worth out on loan.

At Leeds, he would be working under Marcelo Bielsa; a perfectionist who demands the ball is played out from the back.

 

This suits Wolves as Nuno Espirito Santo will also want the 19-year-old to be comfortable in possession.

Leeds are currently without Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi, leaving them with little cover in defence.

Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper are forming a solid partnership but John could provide competition for places.

And if Bielsa wants to use three central defenders – as he has done on a few occasions this term – then the Wolves youngster is the perfect man for the job.

This move has the potential to suit all parties if Leeds plot a January loan swoop.
