Leeds United and Liverpool are among the Premier League clubs to have had a bid accepted for 16-year-old defender Sam Campbell, according to a report from the Evening Times.
Motherwell are hoping to keep the teenager. The Evening Times reports that they have offered Campbell a new contract. However, it does appear that they are not going to stand in his way should he decide to leave.
According to the Evening Times, Leeds, Liverpool and Brighton and Hove Albion have all had bids for the starlet accepted.
It is noted that Campbell is yet to make a decision on his future and is considering all of the options on the table.
TBR View: Leeds could replicate McKinstry move by signing Campbell
It is not the first time that Leeds have had a bid accepted for a Motherwell prospect. The Whites signed Stuart McKinstry from Well in 2019.
He has gone on to catch the eye for the club’s youth ranks, and started both of Leeds’s under-23 games in Premier League 2 so far this term.
And his progress was rewarded with a new contract. The club confirmed on their official website that he is set to stay at Elland Road until 2023.
Of course, moves to Anfield and the Amex Stadium will be difficult to turn down. But perhaps McKinstry’s development could play a small factor in Campbell’s decision.
