Leeds United youngster has started his career at the club off with a bang.

Leeds fans celebrate their team's victory during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Derby County at Elland Road on November 29, 2014 in Leeds, England.

Kemar Roofe bagged an impressive hat-trick for Leeds last night - and he was not the only one.

Kun Temenuzkhov netted three goals for the under-23s as they beat non-league Ossett Town in a 4-1 victory.

It begins a dream start for the young Bulgarian striker who Leeds signed from Barcelona earlier this month.

Kun spent several years in Barcelona's famed La Masia academy before being tempted into a switch to Leeds under Andrea Radrizzani's new set up, with director Ivan Bravo helping recruit top young talent from abroad.

The 17-year-old joined Leeds because he hopes for a quicker path to the first team than at Barcelona, and he is off to a strong start.

Leeds are in need of new strikers after Chris Wood's departure to Burnley.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported last night that Leeds are closing in on the signing of 19-year-old Dutchman Jay-Roy Grot.

If Kun Temenuzkhov can continue his strong start for Leeds under-23s, he could quickly be joining him in the first team.
