Leeds United are close to signing Charlie Allen from Linfield.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, Graham Smyth, the 16-year-old young talent is expected to make a switch to Elland Road this week.

The Whites are looking to bolster their squad following their promotion to the Premier League.

A number of big-name transfer targets have been linked with moves to Elland Road, but Leeds are also planning for the future.

Leeds have been tracking the youngster for a while. They were set to sign the highly-rated forward earlier this year, but it seems they are now on the brink of confirming a deal.

Many Leeds fans, however, are worried about the club’s transfer policy. Marcelo Bielsa is yet to sign a new contract, and fans want the club to sort out his deal first.

Leeds have been linked with a host of exciting players, but many fans want the club to focus on bolstering the senior squad. Here are some of the selected tweets:

Allan looks like an exciting young talent. He has excelled at Linfield where he showed maturity beyond his years. Linfield boss David Healy has a lot of faith in him, and he has described him as a ‘very good’ footballer.

He is an exciting forward who has an eye for goal and can pick a pass. At such a tender age, he has great composure with the ball on his feet and nothing seems to faze him. He is likely to develop in Leeds’ academy and is a player for the future.
