Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien is keen on a move to Leeds United this summer.
That’s according to a report from Football Insider, who say the 22-year-old wants to play in the Premier League.
Central midfield remains a position that Leeds need to strengthen this summer, as they look for backup to Kalvin Phillips.
Now it seems as though things are moving in the right direction for the Whites in pursuit of this deal.
According to this latest update, O’Brien is keen on a move to Leeds if a deal can be agreed with Huddersfield.
It is thought that the midfielder holds ambitions to play in the top-flight next season, an opportunity Leeds can of course offer him.
As things stand, there is a year remaining on O’Brien’s contract with Huddersfield, although the Terriers do have the option to extend that by a further 12 months.
This does seem promising for Leeds in my opinion.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side do still look short on options in midfield, and O’Brien is an exciting, promising option to fill that role.
As a result, the fact that O’Brien is keen on a move to Elland Road, puts Leeds in a strong position to get a deal done for the 22-year-old.
It will be interesting therefore, to see if the Whites are able to agree terms with Huddersfield to get this signing done.
