Steve Evans backs Bailey Peacock-Farrell for the Premier League

Goalkeeping Gloves

The Leeds United boss is a fan of the teenage goalkeeper.

Leeds United take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship tomorrow night live on Sky Sports.

Speaking ahead of the game Leeds United boss Steve Evans had some kind words to say about young goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

It has been claimed this week that Leeds were in for Wolves stopper Carl Ikeme in November but failed with a loan move. With Ross Turnbull out until the new year and Charlie Horton leaving the club for personal reasons the 19-year-old has become the club's second-choice keeper.

But Evans is a huge believer in his potential. Speaking at his press conference today he is quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post as stating:

"I don't say it often but this boy will play in the Premier League."

That is certainly big praise to put on a player who has not yet made his debut for the first-team but it goes to show the obvious talent that the Leeds United youngster possesses.

The Yorkshire side go into the game on the back of a 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic at the weekend and unbeaten in three games.

Meanwhile Wolves are continuing to struggle in their bid to find the form of last season, which saw them mount a promotion challenge.
