Young Leeds United striker Kun Temenuzhkov's potential was highlighted last week by a Guardian article which rated him in the world's top 60 young footballers.

The Bulgarian signed for Leeds' academy from Barcelona in the summer and is currently starring for the under-23s.

Temenuzhkov has since acknowledged the praise, and sent a message to supporters on his Instagram page, vowing to live up to his potential.

He said: "Very happy to be nominated among the 60 talents of my generation we must continue to work and make this dream come true as soon as possible."

Signing the teenager was a real coup for Leeds in the summer, and he was just one of a number of young talents snapped up from Spain as the club sought to give their under-23 side a boost after a poor season.

Results have been modest so far, but Temenuzhkov has been on the scoresheet on more than one occasion already.

To be deemed a success he will have to break into the first team, but his chances of doing so at Leeds are greater than had he stayed at Barcelona, and the forward will have to hope his decision to switch clubs pays off.
