Lee Erwin talks about how he is developing at Leeds United

The Leeds United teenager has explained how he is developing in his early months at Elland Road.

Young Leeds United forward Lee Erwin has been speaking to BBC Radio Leeds about the conversations he has had with first-team manager Uwe Rosler in terms of improving his game.

Erwin is yet to play for the Leeds first-team, but he got two goals for the club’s under-21s this week and will be hoping that is a stepping stone to a potential Championship appearance sooner rather than later.

With Chris Wood, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara all currently ahead of him in terms of striking options, Erwin will know he has a lot of hard work to do before he can consider challenging them.

But whatever the future brings, it is clear the 21-year-old is enjoying learning from Rosler and his Leeds coaches.

“I knew I wasn’t going to be part of the first-team straight away when I came in but I’m enjoying it,” he told BBC Radio Leeds. “I’m still only 21, developing under Rosler is pretty good for me.

“He says to get sharper, stronger; I’m doing programmes now with the fitness coach which hopefully means I’ll be up to scratch soon.”

Hopefully he will, because if he remains at Leeds – rather than heading out on loan – he could be exactly what Rosler needs when the going gets tough at the business-end of the campaign; an unknown element coming off the bench who has shown he has the scoring touch during his time at Motherwell in his homeland.
