Report: Leeds talent Sam Greenwood scouted by Championship clubs

Leeds United youngster Sam Greenwood has caught the eye of several Championship scouts ahead of the January transfer window, according to The Telegraph.

The youngster is enjoying a sound season for the club’s under-23 ranks after checking in from Arsenal during the summer.

An England under-18 international, Greenwood is wanted on loan by several second-tier outfits who believe he could make an impact during the second half of the season.

Greenwood has fired six goals in seven games for the under-23 ranks and is knocking on the door of Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

He has spent some time on the sidelines with injury so far this season and Leeds are facing a decision over what to do next.

Greenwood was a surprise capture from the Gunners, with the starlet scoring 15 goals in 39 appearances for the Arsenal under-23 outfit.

Leeds must be careful if they decide to let Greenwood leave, given their squad is on the small side.

 

Patrick Bamford has been in blistering form this season, scoring nine goals for the Whites.

The next top scoring player is Mateusz Klich with just three goals.

Leeds will look at the impact of a player like Rhian Brewster, who excelled on loan at Swansea from Liverpool last season, as the model for a loan player.

There is, however, a suggestion that he could be needed at Elland Road during the second half of the campaign.

If anything were to happen to Bamford, Leeds would have Rodrygo in reserve but very little after that.

One injury could propel Greenwood into first-team contention and Bielsa has been keen to utilise the club’s younger players.

It will be interesting to see what Leeds decide in the coming weeks.
