Leeds United are showing an interest in Ethiopian talent Naanol Tesfaye, according to Swedish newspaper Norran.

The report backs up claims from website O-Posts earlier this month that Leeds and Manchester City are both keen on Tesfaye.

Tesfaye is just 14-years-old, and is already beginning to make a name for himself as he begins his football career.

The young talent is eligible to play for both Sweden and Ethiopa, and the latter have already made efforts to call him into their international under-17 squad.

Tesfaye was most recently playing for Swedish academy side Vasalund as a right-back, and is searching for a new club, aiming to secure a deal in England.

Leeds have made big investments into their academy over the past year, signing youngsters from Real Madrid and Barcelona's academies.

Tesfaye is just a name to note for the future, but it is encouraging that the Whites are continuing to scour the world for potential new faces.
