The young Welshman left Leeds United this week and the Rotherham United boss knows him very well.

After 15 years at the club, Chris Dawson announced that he had left Leeds United this week, finally ending the hopes of those Whites fans who believed he would one day become a first-team regular.

Instead the 21-year-old left Elland Road having played just four times for the senior side and for now his future remains unclear.

Given his innate talent there are sure to be plenty of clubs interested in bringing him in and there is a chance of a reunion with his former manager Neil Redfearn who is now in charge of Rotherham United.

Redfearn gave Dawson three substitute appearances last season and while that saw him enjoy just 36 minutes on the pitch it was a step in the right direction.

It also showed how highly Redfearn rated a player he knew extremely well from his time in charge of Leeds’ academy, and now he is a free agent do not be surprised if the Rotherham boss makes a move for the young Welshman.

There is no doubt Dawson has the talent to prove the naysayers wrong but only time will tell where he is then plying his trade.
