Leeds United were linked with the Sheffield Wednesday youngster in the summer.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reported in the summer that Leeds had asked about the 18-year-old, who now looks set to leave Hillsborough after Chansiri admitted to Owlstalk.co.uk that "there is little more we can do to keep George at Sheffield Wednesday" following an impasse over contract negotiations.
Hirst has only made one Championship appearance for the Owls but the young striker is a target of Premier League clubs nonetheless, according to The YEP, and although some fans of the Elland Road club would love him, they are pessimistic over their chances.
Hurst sounds like a good prospect, hope we go for it again— BC (@BC_LUFC) December 4, 2017
Would really appreciate the signing— Alex (@AlexLUFC96) December 4, 2017
surely not the priority right now? Proper Orta stuff this— Jack (@TalkingJackShit) December 4, 2017
So he's another u23s signing then? (although it sounds like we won't get him anyway)— Steve Wilco (@steve_wilco) December 5, 2017
Player power gone mad.— Crown Electrical (@CrownElecServ) December 4, 2017
He's done well in the kids team and he thinks he's Harry Kane.
As a Leeds fan I dot care what happens to SWFC, but I do care what these upstarts anc 'Ralph Filthy' agents are doing to my game.
Is he a centre forward? I have a sneaky feeling we'll get a big lad but concentrate on getting a little Whizzkid kid— Dr.T (@DoctorT1992) December 4, 2017
Why do we need to go there we have players his age who can and are scoring goals but we need to get them in team let the young academy lads have a go first— Paul (@Paul25048653) December 4, 2017
The YEP added that Leeds were unwilling to meet Hirst's valuation, though it remains to be seen whether that would still be the case as January approaches.
The Whites' Director of Football Victor Orta signed a slew of Under-23 talent during the summer but virtually none of those are anywhere near to Thomas Christiansen's first team it has to be said.
Even some of the young players that were signed specifically for the senior side - like Jay-Roy Grot and Pawel Cibicki - can't get a look-in at the moment, so it seems unlikely that Hirst would be fare much better for now.
He was England's top goalscorer at the Toulon Tournament in the summer, where the Three Lions won the competition.
