Eoghan Stokes, Jack Vann and Ronaldo Vieira have what it takes to impress Garry Monk this summer

Swansea manager Garry Monk

Leeds United have some very good young players who will be looking to impress their new boss.

Elland Road

Leeds United manager Garry Monk has plenty to do this summer but so do his players, as the current Whites squad attempt to impress their new boss in pre-season and ensure they are part of his first-team plans come August.

While the senior stars are the obvious focus, there will also be some Leeds youngsters who will know the next few months will offer the perfect chance for them to impress the new man at the helm.

With Leeds possessing some very exciting prospects we take a look at three who could force themselves into Monk’s thinking during pre-season.

Eoghan Stokes

Leeds have a few young strikers in their ranks and 20-year-old Eoghan Stokes is among the best.

A regular for the Whites’ under-21s last season, the Republic of Ireland under-19 international has what it takes to impress Monk in training and potentially challenge the senior strikers in the months ahead.

Jack Vann

Teenage defenders are rarely used in the first-team unless they are exceptional, but 17-year-old Jack Vann certainly has what it takes to impress his new manager this summer.

The centre-back made his debut for Leeds’ under-21s when he was just 16 and he is now a regular at that level, impressing more often than not.

While Monk will not throw him in at the deep end there is a chance he could continue his habit of playing above his age level sooner rather than later.

Ronaldo Vieira

Ronaldo Vieira may only be 17 but he could be the next big thing to break through at Elland Road.

Having initially joined the club on trial he was offered a two-year deal and set about impressing first at youth and then at under-21 level.

Those performances earned him his Leeds debut under former manager Steve Evans in a 1-1 draw with Preston North End, and while it was a very brief cameo there could be more chances next season.
