Leeds United appear to have missed out on one of Forest Green Rovers’ brightest talents.
But with Reece Brown apparently on his way to Huddersfield Town, The Whites should be planning to make up for it by signing the 11-goal forward’s Forest Green team-mate instead.
According to The Sun (18 June, page 48), Leeds were keen to snap up Brown after a superb season in League Two. But the 23-year-old is set to join Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield, the report claiming that a deal is very nearly done.
Brown, however, is not the only talented youngster thriving in Gloucestershire.
According to TEAMtalk, Nathan McGinley could be on his way to the Championship just one year after he wasn’t deemed good enough for Middlesbrough. A 22-year-old who can play at centre-half and left-back, McGinley is apparently a target for Nottingham Forest, Bristol City, Swansea – and Huddersfield.
But considering how Leeds collapsed in the final few weeks of last season, a series of defensive mistakes costing them dear, a hungry, aggressive young stopper like McGinley could be exactly the kind of signing they need to make.
His ability to fill in at left-back, a position where Leeds are rather weak, should appeal too.
So with Brown on his way to the John Smith’s Stadium, Leeds should be looking to take immediate revenge on Huddersfield by luring McGinley to Elland Road.
