Former Wolves star Matt Murray says Leeds United's Lewis Cook has 'massive future'

Leeds United youngster Lewis Cook has been hailed by an ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper.

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Matt Murray has praised one of Leeds United’s current players on Twitter.

The retired stopper was a pundit for Sky Sports’ coverage of the Championship match between Leeds and Bournemouth on Tuesday evening and he got to see the players up close as Neil Redfearn’s men finally ended their poor run of form.

Leeds’ 1-0 victory – courtesy of a strike from Luke Murphy – ended the Whites’ eight-game run without a win.

Had Bournemouth scored with a late penalty things would have been very different, but former Charlton Athletic striker Yann Kermorgant missed, ensuring Leeds took a vital three points.

Following the match, it seems one Leeds player impressed former Wolves ‘keeper Murray in particular.

Writing on Twitter on Wednesday, he said, “For all the Leeds fans who asked, yes I think Lewis Cook has a massive future. Impressed me every time I have seen him. Great energy levels.”

Cook may only be 17, but he has already made 26 appearances for Leeds this season, playing practically every minute since Redfearn took permanent charge at Elland Road.
