Everton and Bournemouth are interested in signing Leeds United defender Tom Pearce in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 63, May 13, 2018) (click here to read more).
Pearce is out of contact at the West Yorkshire outfit this summer, and Premier League duo Everton and Bournemouth reportedly want to secure the services of the 20-year-old left-back on a free transfer this summer.
Leeds, though, want the youngster to remain at Elland Road beyond the summer, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.
The report has also claimed that Leeds had previously intended to release the young left-back this summer, but the defender’s impressive performances for the first team this season have forced them into a U-turn.
The 20-year-old left-back is far from the finished article, but the former Everton prospect is hugely talented, and he will only get better if he plays regular first-team football.
