Elland Road

Leeds United rising star Alex Mowatt has earned further recognition of his talents today.

Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt has been named as one of the Football League's top ten youngsters by Four Four Two

The 19-year-old has dazzled for the Whites this season and his increasing reputation is only set to improve with praise like this. 

Mowatt is renowned as one of the finest players to have come out of Leeds' academy for some time and Premier League clubs are already taking an interest.

Aston Villa and Everton are among the sides supposedly tracking Mowatt's progress, but Leeds are understandably not looking to sell the creative star, who has become a key member of their first-team line-up.

Mowatt has played 18 times already this season, scoring four goals, and his ability in possession has caught the eye. 

Although Leeds' form has been poor, Mowatt has still driven his side forward and terrorised opposition teams with his willingness to run at defenders. 

Whites boss Neil Redfearn has spoken of his admiration for the England youth international and if he is able to continue progressing at his current rate then he appears to have a very bright future. 

Mowatt was joined by the likes of Ipswich Town's Teddy Bishop and Northampton Town's Ivan Toney as one of the Football League's most talented youngsters.
