Stuart Dallas has named Leeds United team-mate Leif Davis as the squad's quickest player.

The 19-year-old hasn't made a huge impression on the pitch under Marcelo Bielsa as of yet, having only had 94 minutes of Championship football under his belt so far.

But the promising left-back, who joined Leeds in the summer of 2018, appears to have left a lasting impression in training, primarily with his pace.

Speaking to LUTV, Dallas originally named Portuguese winger Helder Costa as the speediest player in Bielsa's squad.

 

Asked on LUTV who the quickest player in the squad is, Dallas simply responded: "Helder Costa."

Later in the video, while talking about Davis, the Northern Ireland international added: "He might be the quickest you know, Leif. Leif is quick yeah, very quick."

Davis could struggle for first-team action on a regular basis this season.

It would appear as if Bielsa fancies Ezgjan Alioski and Barry Douglas ahead of him in terms of left-back options, but it's clear that the young defender has a very bright future ahead of him.
