It has been reported that Leeds’s director of football, Victor Orta, is keen on doing a deal now for the 16-year-old midfielder.
Cochrane is a hugely talented and promising young footballer who has already made five appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season.
The midfielder is one of the best and most talented young players in Scotland, and one can understand why Leeds are (reportedly) interested in him.
However, it remains to be seen if Hearts would be interested in doing business with Leeds over a player who has just broken into the first team.
Cochrane is tipped for great things in the future, and it would make sense for the Scottish Premiership club to hold onto him for a bit longer.
