Report: West Ham and Leeds interested in MK Dons full-back Matthew Sorinola

Premier League sides West Ham United and Leeds United are among the clubs reportedly interested in MK Dons full-back Matthew Sorinola.

TEAMtalk have claimed both David Moyes and Marcelo Bielsa are keen on the teenage left-back, who has been making waves in League One.

Sorinola only made his first-team debut last season, but is now a regular in the Dons starting XI in 2020/21 and has made 17 appearances across all competitions, including four in the EFL Trophy.

A host of scouts are said to have been impressed by Sorinola’s progress, with Newcastle United, West Brom and Crystal Palace from the Premier League also keen.

TEAMtalk add that there is also interest from the Championship in the form of Brentford, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough.

 

Sorinola has mainly been deployed as a left wing-back this season, which may especially pique the interest of West Ham, who have had success recently with a three-man defence with wing-backs.

TBR’s View – One for the future for West Ham?

The form of Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku has greatly improved in recent times, but there could be scope for a young, attack-minded left-back/left wing-back to come in in January.

Cresswell turns 31 in a couple of days and the club will need to start thinking about a long-term replacement.

Interest appears to be very high in Sorinola, for the Hammers will have to be efficient if they want to sign the young star.
