Taking a closer look at three Leeds United prospects yet to feature for the senior side.
The Whites have suffered a couple of heavy defeats in recent times, but in between they went on a fine run of form and they certainly have the young players to suggest a bright future at Elland Road.
With little left to play for this season aside from a top-10 finish, manager Steve Evans could give more of the club’s next generation their first senior run-out and here we take a look at three candidates:
Evans has already gone on record to say he wants to give 19-year-old goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell his debut before the end of the season, and given his performances for the under-21s that will be fully deserved.
The teenager commands his area brilliantly and has composure between the posts that belies his age.
Striker Frank Mulhern is now a regular for Leeds’ under-21s and it would be no surprise to see him make the step up between now and May, if only for a few minutes from the substitutes’ bench.
The 19-year-old is a raw talent who will be looking to seize any chance that comes his way. However there is still work to be done on his overall game, as you would expect of a player his age.
Another young forward, 19-year-old Eoghan Stokes has featured – and scored – regularly for Leeds’ second string this season and he is ready for a few minutes in the first-team.
Stokes has a moment of magic in his game, making him an ideal option from the bench.
