Manchester City have one of the most impressive youth academies in the world, with players from around the globe coming through the ranks at the City Football Academy.

Of course, with City having one of the most illustrious first-teams in world football, regular playing time is hard to come by.

Therefore plenty of their better talents are sent out on loan, including Dutch midfield operator Rodney Kongolo.

The 19-year-old, brother of Monaco defender Terence, has been impressing out on loan at League One Doncaster Rovers this season. The teenager has played 21 times in League One this season but his deal at the Keepmoat runs out on January 3rd and a Yorkshire rival should consider making a move for the athletic talent.

Leeds have midfield options in Kalvin Phillips, Ronaldo Vieira and Eunan O’Kane but Mateusz Klich has failed to establish himself at Elland Road and another option in the form of a young and enthusiastic talent could be very beneficial.

Leeds United could use more depth in their side and Kongolo is a player who would thrive under the tutelage of Thomas Christiansen.

The Leeds boss has an added advantage in a potential pursuit for a City player. The Elland Road gaffer has a good relationship with Pep Guardiola and the City boss would love to have Kongolo playing football the way Leeds are trying to at present.
