Leeds United are interested in signing Milos Veljkovic from Tottenham Hotspur on a loan deal.
HITC Sport reported earlier today that Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler has identified the youngster as someone who would enhance the quality of his squad.
Rosler is looking for a defensive midfielder at the moment and the 19-year-old is one of his targets.
It has been reported that the Whites want to sign Serbia Under-21 international on an initial one-month loan deal and are unable to guarantee him playing time.
While one can understand both clubs’ stance, perhaps it is best if Leeds accept the terms and get on with it.
The reason is simple. Veljkovic is a very talented young player who is going to be a superb addition to Rosler’s promotion-chasing squad.
The teenager is wanted by the Leeds head coach due to his ability in defensive midfield, but he can also feature as a centre-back.
This means that the Championship outfit will get ‘two players for the price of one’ if they secure the services of Veljkovic on a loan deal.
Tottenham reportedly want to make sure that the youngster gets playing time. While Leeds cannot guarantee that for understandable reasons, perhaps they can at least assure the North London outfit that the 19-year-old will get chances in the first team to show what he can do.
Veljkovic was superb in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup earlier this summer and played an important role in Serbia winning the competition.
For his development, the youngster needs to feature in competitive games regularly. The teenager will be hungry to do well, and Leeds should sign him.
