Leeds United boss Steve Evans admits Charlie Taylor should be playing in the Premier League

The Scot is hopeful the left-back will play in the top-flight with Leeds United.

Leeds United's youngsters have been attracting plenty of interest recently - not just from the fans and media.

The likes of Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Alex Mowatt have all been revelations at the club and nobody wants to see any of these talented young stars leave the club.

Another name on the list is Charlie Taylor.

The attacking left-back has been in incredible form this season and in recent weeks has been missed after a bout of glandular fever.

He is of course now back to full fitness and the Leeds boss Steve Evans has heralded his superhuman effort once again during his press conference today.

He also made it clear that he felt Taylor is destined for the Premier League - hopefully with Leeds United.

He is quoted by the Yorkshire Post as telling the media:

“I described him as not human.

“He came in at the early part of the week and we look at the standards on the training pitch and the results and the analysis and he is back up there again.

“The boy is going to play in the Premier League and we all have to hope and pray that it’s with Leeds United because this football club should play in the Premier League and Charlie Taylor will play in the Premier League.”

Taylor has of course been linked with Premier League teams already. He was rumoured to be on the radar of Manchester United in September by the Daily Star.

Leeds however currently look to be off the pace regarding a place in the Premier League so Evans will know he might have a fight on his hands keeping Taylor at Leeds in the years to come.
