Leeds fans encourage young prospect.
Leeds United talent Alfie McCalmont is hoping this is the season he can make the breakthrough.
McCalmont recently trained with the Northern Ireland senior team, stepping up from the youth set up.
He is back at Leeds after a short summer break, looking to catch manager Marcelo Bielsa's eye.
The midfield star has been a regular for Leeds at under-23 level and has an eye for goal.
He is bound to get chances in pre-season, and will be hoping to earn a spot on Leeds' trip to Australia.
This is a big season for the 19-year-old, who Leeds could decide to send out on loan if they deem that is best for him.
Fans have been sending McCalmont encouraging messages in reply to his tweet.
Leeds supporters love nothing more than seeing a homegrown talent break into the first team, and Marcelo Bielsa has shown he is not afraid to call on youth talent.
