Coventry City youngster Sam McCallum has been discussing his future and current happiness at the club.
It comes amid rumours linking Leeds United with an interest in the player. As reported by the Coventry Telegraph, Leeds are said to be scouting the talented defender in a similar fashion to the way they previously showed interest in his team-mate Jodi Jones before a serious knee injury.
Leeds United could certainly use reinforcements at right-back and McCallum is a top talent who could have a bright future in the game.
However, speaking to Kent Online this week, the defender stated he was currently just focussing on being a success at Coventry, although he does harbour ambitions of playing in the Premier League.
“Playing in the Premiership is obviously still a dream.
“If I went all the way it’d be so big for me because I’m one of those millions of kids who have wanted it.
“But at the moment I’m focusing on trying to get the starting position at Coventry and then see where it goes from there. I’m definitely living the dream.”
McCallum never seemed like an instant Leeds United transfer report. Instead, it appears the West Yorkshire side simply have him on their radar and could think about making a move at some point down the line.
Right now, the best avenue for McCallum is to remain at Coventry and continue shining in the club’s attempts to win promotion back to the Championship.
If he can do that, then Leeds United will undoubtedly be taking a closer look.
