Leeds have today been linked with Posh striker Jack Marriott with the club in desperate need of a striker. The ex-Luton Town forward is banging in the goals in League One and is the highest scorer in the top four English divisions this season.

The 23-year-old striker made the move from League Two Luton to Peterborough in the summer and has hit the ground running in spectacular fashion. He has scored 17 goals in 26 games since making the step up and his performances have attracted interest from a host of clubs. Aston Villa and Hull City are apparently the two clubs, along with Leeds who are chasing the player. The Express have today reported that the club are bracing themselves for bids this month, the potential goals and progression in the striker clearly catching the eye of many clubs.

Stepping up the leagues isn’t easy, just ask Nicky Ajose who is now back down in League Two. However you need only look at Kemar Roofe for an example of how things can go, and even Andre Gray and Charlie Austin who have gone up through the leagues and now play in the Premier League. He has bags of pace and he can score various types of goals. He is a striker who likes to play on the shoulder and his movement has proved a tough ask to defend against for other League One sides. Whether a bid materialises we will wait and see. He was a key part of the Posh side that knocked Aston Villa out of the FA Cup on Saturday.

About Author

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.
