Leeds United are keeping tabs on Bristol City central midfielder Josh Brownhill, with manager Paul Heckingbottom a fan of the player, the Sun on Sunday reports [18th February printed edition, page 60].
Would the 22-year-old be a good signing for the Whites? Do Leeds really need him?
We issue our verdicts….
Brownhill is a good player and played a key role in Bristol City’s excellent start at Elland Road, and would be a solid target for Leeds.
Whether they can prise him away from an Ashton Gate side chasing down promotion remains to be seen.
I’m a fan of the player and especially his energy in midfield.
However, I don’t see him as a massive upgrade and there are other areas that Leeds need to reinforce more urgently.
He does seem like a Hecky type of player and Leeds do need to start buying more domestically so from that point of view it would be a good move.
He’d be a really strong signing.
Leeds still need some more experience in the Championship in terms of their players and Brownhill would add to that.
Whether or not Bristol City will let him go remains to be seen though.
Brownhill has been good this season for Bristol City, and he would improve Leeds’ options.
On yesterday’s first-half showing, there are a lot of Bristol City players who would be good additions to Leeds’ squad.
Yes, he would be a very good signing.
Brownhill has a good all-round game and a very good attitude so you can see why Heckingbottom is interested.
He has shown his quality for Bristol City this season and chips in with goals and assists from the right-hand side, whilst he can also play in the middle so that versatility is useful too.
Sign him up!
