Leeds United assistant Paul Raynor makes it clear that Bailey Peacock-Farrell will not be leaving club

The teenage goalie has been linked with Aston Villa and Everton.

Leeds United take on Middlesbrough this weekend and the press conference at the Thorp Arch training facility today was taken by the club's assistant Paul Raynor.

He spoke about the game at length but also had to brush off reports of a potential outgoing at the club.

He made it clear to the assembled media, including the Yorkshire Evening Post, that the player in question would be going nowhere.

That player is teenage goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell:

"He'll be staying. We won't allow him to leave the club. There's no chance of that."

The 19-year-old has been promoted to Leeds first-team picture in recent weeks due to Ross Turnbull's serious ankle injury and the sudden departure of American goalie Charlie Horton.

It was reported in the Daily Star yesterday that Premier League clubs Everton and Aston Villa were both chasing his signature - considering his contract with Leeds runs out at the end of June.

However Leeds are in talks with the teen about an extending that deal and Raynor seems to be adamant that the club will not be losing yet another of their prized assets in the coming months.

Hopefully Leeds can get him signed to a new deal as soon as possible.
