Charlie Horton was Leeds United's first signing of the summer, but the young goalkeeper remains some way off the first team.
He is regarded as a raw prospect, and Uwe Rosler the man who signed him would go on to sanction a deal to sign a more senior goalkeeper in Ross Turnbull, to usurp Horton as number two to Marco Silvestri.
With Turnbull injured, Horton has been on the bench for Leeds of late, but speculation is linking Leeds with a swoop for out of favour West Brom stopper Anders Lindegaard, reported by the Express and Star.
Horton could have had a chance of getting a game for Leeds in their friendly match against Wycombe Wanderers on Friday, but instead he is on international duty on the other side of the world.
He is part of the USA under-23 team which is preparing for the Olympic games in 2016, and last night he featured in Recife, as the Americans travelled to take on Brazil.
Horton was handed the start, but was substituted at half-time after a mixed display, with USA losing 2-1.
He made a number of saves, display good shot stopping abilities, but it was his decision making which came into questions. Horton was booked for holding onto the ball too long, and rushed out, only to be rounded by attacker Gabriel, to concede a first half goal.
Here is a look at how USA fans reacted to his performance...
Someone needs to tell Charlie Horton there are options besides kicking the ball long down the field. US needs to keep the ball at some point— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) November 11, 2015
Gosh. Charlie Horton struggling a bit here. Just picked up a foul for holding the ball to long. #U23MNT— 20toffees (@20toffees) November 11, 2015
Horrible from Charlie Horton so far... 6 second call and a poor clearance— Austin Miller (@austin_james906) November 11, 2015
Good save now from Horton on a long distance effort from Fred. All Brazil in the opening 20 minutes— Austin Miller (@austin_james906) November 11, 2015
Horton comes up big on a 30 yard strike, nearly a goal for Brazil— Champagne Soccer Co. (@ChampgneSoccer) November 11, 2015
