Leeds United are open to selling Mallik Wilks to Hull City, report the Hull Daily Mail.

Hull want to sign him and are managed by Grant McCann, who had him on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season.

Selling the 20-year-old now sounds like a terrible idea.

 

Wilks scored 16 goals on loan last season, rising to the challenge put in front of him to become a star at a promotion chasing side.

He is a player with real potential, sharp in front of goal and has tricks at his feet. This is a talent Marcelo Bielsa can surely mould into a top star?

Selling him to a division rival would be a mistake. Especially without seeing Wilks play at Championship level.

There is only one deal Leeds should consider, and that's a loan deal with a break clause in January if Leeds need him.

The Whites may consider that there is no room for Wilks in their XI, or on the bench on a weekly basis.

But that doesn't mean they should sell him now. If he stars in the Championship his value will only rise.
