Leeds seem likely to make a bid for Manchester United full back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson to help cover the left back position for the new season. Reports suggest contact may have been made already and the deal is possible.

Borthwick-Jackson isn’t in the plans at Manchester United but he is highly rated by the club, already making 10 appearances for the club, including in the Premier League. The 20-year-old had a short loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers last season but it wasn’t successful as many loans aren’t, only making 6 appearances in the Championship under Paul Lambert. He has been capped numerous times at England youth level including at under 20’s. Leeds are keen to get a left back in ahead of the new season, with Charlie Taylor departing in the summer to join Burnley.

Gaetano Berardi is currently the number one left back at the club, a position he filled and did very well in for the majority of last season when Taylor was “injured”. He isn’t the most attacking but in terms of commitment and passion he is at the very top, and is also a very good defender. Borthwick-Jackson would not only add competition but also a natural left back, which is key in a 46 game Championship season. Although the deal isn’t confirmed at all, various media outlets are claiming it is currently being discussed.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
