Tottenham interested in Leeds goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, where does he fit in?

Tottenham are among the clubs interested in Leeds United prospect.

Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs to have joined the race for Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, HITC Sport understands.

Peacock-Farrell made his senior debut for Leeds on Tuesday evening against QPR, and came close to keeping a clean sheet, conceding a penalty in the 87th minute after an assured performance.

The 19-year-old is out of contract in the summer, making it an anxious time for the Whites, as Premier League interest increases.

For Tottenham, a deal is a bit of a no-brainer. Peacock-Farrell is a promising talent who at just 19 has shown himself capable of holding his own in front of a big crowd in a Championship game.

Spurs are a side intent on snapping up young, English talent to shape their future, evidenced by the additions of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, and countless young players impressing at academy and England youth level like Josh Onomah and Marcus Edwards.

Peacock-Farrell is a player their coaching staff could work with, and mould into a first team player in the long term, and given that he is out of contract, would only cost a small fee to be determined at a tribunal.

The youngster may consider he would get more chances in the first team at Leeds, but his first team place there is far from assured, only making his debut due to suspension to Marco Silvestri, and injury to Ross Turnbull.

At Tottenham he would be behind captain and French international Hugo Lloris, and Michel Vorm, who was recently called into the Dutch squad.

There could be a chance that Vorm could move on to finally hunt down first team football, leaving Peacock-Farrell competing for an understudy role with current Spurs under-21 goalkeeper Luke McGee, 20, who has represented England at youth level.

A move to Spurs would therefore be a gamble in the short-term for Peacock-Farrell, but if they are interested in him then it is because they believe he can be an asset, and it will be up to Leeds to convince him he is better off at Elland Road, perhaps by even offering him the number one jersey and moving Silvestri and Turnbull aside.
