Domingos Quina was supposed to be one of the biggest talents in European football. At least, that was the view of West Ham’s academy director Terry Westley when the Portuguese starlet signed professional terms with the London club back in November 2016.

Despite starring at youth level and attracting the attention of some of the biggest clubs on the planet, Quina has been trusted to make just six senior appearances for West Ham since he made his debut all the way back in the Slaven Bilic days.

Suddenly, the 19-year-old has just one year left on his contract and could be about to leave the London Stadium on the cheap.

The Mirror (live blog, 2.00pm) reports that Leeds United have made contact with the Premier League side about signing Quina while Newcastle are keen too.

And what a signing this would be for Leeds, even if the teenage midfielder hasn’t shot to stardom quite as quick as many had predicted. Quina is a wonderful talent with genuine top class potential. He is viewed over in Portugal as one of the nation’s biggest prospects too.

So no wonder some sections of the West Ham support are hoping that this new transfer rumour is just that; a rumour.
