Leeds United signed Sam Dalby from Leyton Orient in January and the National League side have another in-demand youngster.

Leeds United raided Leyton Orient for their 18-year-old forward Sam Dalby during the January transfer window.

The teenager became the latest highly-rated prospect to move to Elland Road during the reign of director of football Victor Orta and has made an impression with Leeds’ youth teams already, scoring a number of goals to raise his chance of a first-team bow before the end of the season.

But, just a few months after Dalby swapped Brisbane Road for Elland Road, should Leeds be looking at another exciting forward turning heads at Leyton Orient?

According to the Sun, Macauley Bonne has plenty of admirers after netting 20 goals in 40 games for Orient in the National League this season.

Burton Albion, Shrewsbury Town and Portsmouth are all keen on the 22-year-old Zimbabwe international, who has been tipped to follow Jamie Vardy in rising through the divisions at a rapid rate.

And Leeds should take note, with just a year remaining on Bonne’s contract.

Orta continues to be heavily criticised in West Yorkshire but certainly has an eye for young talent, with Dalby far from the only fresh-faced teenager who has earned rave reviews since moving to Leeds under the Spanish recruitment chief.

And as long as Bonne keeps scoring in the lower leagues, Leeds should join the growing list of clubs expressing an interest.
