In line with Fabrizio Romano, Leeds United are currently preparing the formal confirmation of the signing of talented striker Sonny Perkins.
In line with the renowned journalist, the young attacker will join Darko Gyabi because the second teenager to hitch the club this summer.
Perkins became available after greater than ten years with West Ham, and Leeds are actually anticipated to pay a minor compensation price for the transfer.
The Whites are nice and able to reveal this one, Romano wrote in his most up-to-date Guardian article on Sunday night [17 July].
“Leeds are preparing to announce the signing of Sonny Perkins after the attacking midfielder left West Ham at the tip of his contract,” he wrote.
“The 18-year-old, who may also play as a striker, made three appearances for West Ham last season and scored 12 goals at under-23 level but was unable to agree a recent deal. He’s poised to turn out to be the second teenager signed by Leeds this summer after Darko Gyabi, who cost £5m from Manchester City.”
Provided that Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood have already committed to the primary team, it makes perfect sense to usher in one other attacker in the shape of under-23 signing Perkins.
Gyabi travelled to Australia with the remainder of the team, but given other arrivals, he’ll team up with Perkins in a brand-new academy team that might be aiming to return to Division One in every of the Premier League 2 as quickly as possible.
