Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Rico Henry in the summer transfer window.

According to The Mirror’s Transfer news LIVE blog on Sunday (July 10, 2016), Leeds are interested in signing Henry from Walsall this summer.

It has been reported that new Leeds head coach Garry Monk has identified the talented teenage defender as a player who can be a good addition to his team.

According to the report, Henry, who plays as a left-back, could move to Championship outfit Leeds in a £1 million deal, but the switch could depend on the future of current first-choice left-back Charlie Taylor.

The 22-year-old defender is reportedly stalling on a new deal at Elland Road amid interest from Premier League-bound Burnley.

Henry is one of the most talented and most promising young defenders in the lower leagues of England.

The 19-year-old had a very successful 2015-16 campaign for Walsall and was included included in the PFA League One Team of the Year.
