Leeds United talent Lewis Cook speaks with pride after latest England Under-19 call-up

Lewis Cook

The midfielder is in the latest under-19 squad for England.

One of Leeds United's most impressive young players is midfield maestro Lewis Cook.

The 19-year-old midfielder has been a regular in the Leeds team for the past two seasons and the hope at Elland Road is that he will go on to become a long-term regular at the club.

He is also an England youth international. An England under-19 he has been called up to duty by his country again this week.

Cook is in the under-19 squad names by Aidy Boothroyd for this months Elite Round fixtures for the UEFA Under-19s European Championships.

He is included in the squad with the likes of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Josh Onomah and Adam Armstrong for tough fixtures with Georgia, Spain and Greece in Lepe in the south of Spain.

Speaking to LUTV this week about his international call-ups Cook is clearly proud to have got his call-up once again:

"You don't go away too much, it is more toward the end of the season.

"It is not as hard to balance it. But it adds a few more games, especially when you are (already) playing quite a lot of games, so that's quite hard.

"But it is always good representing England and you can never say no really.

"You can never say no to representing your country."

Cook, who scored a wondergoal earlier this season with Leeds United v Fulham, is possibly the best talent at Elland Road and in the future the hope is he might even play regularly for the senior national team.

Something he would clearly welcome.
