Ross McCormack may inadvertently help Leeds United snap up Stuart McKinstry

Leeds United are after the talented Motherwell winger.

Leeds United are said to be interested in Motherwell’s young winger Stuart McKinstry. The 16-year-old talent recently made the Motherwell first-team squad for the first time and is highly rated by the Fir Park club.

Leeds, according to the Scottish Sun, are hoping to land the player in a £400,000 deal this week.

Of course, Motherwell will be hoping to keep hold of the player. But, considering the plans they have in the transfer window, a sale could be likely. That’s because Motherwell want a former Leeds player to head back to the club.

Ross McCormack is wanted by the Scottish side. Financially, putting a deal together is going to be difficult, but the player is reportedly keen.

Selling McKinstry could give Motherwell the funds they need to make a deal happen.


Aston Villa, according to the Sun, are willing to pay the bulk of his wages, so a loan fee is all Motherwell need to find for his arrival.

Losing the talented winger to bring in a proven goalscorer is a risk from Motherwell but it could be to the benefit of Leeds.

McCormack, a former captain at Elland Road, may have left Leeds back in 2014 but it appears he could now help the club snap up a talented teenager.
