Leeds United could be looking to Barcelona for potential signings.

Spanish newspaper Sport report a Leeds United scout was spotted watching a Barcelona B match against Valencia B this weekend.

Leeds were one of 20 teams from across Europe in attendance for the Spanish second division game.

 

Valencia won the match 1-0 thanks to a goal from Fran Navarro.

Barcelona currently sit in sixth place in the division.

Leeds have signed two players from Barcelona's academy since owner Andrea Radrizzani took charge of the Whites.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Millwall and Leeds United at The Den on September 16, 2017 in London, England.

Kun Temenuzhkov made his first team debut for Leeds in January and the striker has helped the club's under-23 team to win the PDL North title.

Midfielder Oriol Rey also joined from Barcelona and impressed for the Whites under-23s last season, and is on loan at Conquense in the Spanish second division.

Their latest scouting mission suggests Leeds are taking another look for potential additions from players on the fringes of the Spanish giants' team.
