Leeds United's youth drive continues.
Leeds United's drive to snap up top youth talent has led them to moving for Barcelona sensation Kun Temenuzhkov.
The Bulgarian forward is set to join up with Leeds' under-23 team for the coming campaign.
Bulgarian outlet Novsport reported the developments, claiming 17-year-old Temenuzhkov has told his youth international teammates he is joining Leeds because he feels he will get more opportunities.

Temenuzhkov is one of several young imports to join Leeds this summer to boost their under-23 team, which will be managed by Carlos Corberan.
Former Real Madrid director Ivan Bravo is overseeing the replenishing of the academy, and has already brought in a number of young talents.
Spaniards Madger Gomes, Alejandro Machuca and Adrian Balboa have all signed, along with Moroccan attacker Ousama Siddiki from Real Madrid.
Temenuzhkov appears to be the latest exciting name who will be hoping to one day represent Leeds at senior level and follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo Vieira.
