A host of Premier League clubs are tracking Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, according to The Mirror.
The 19-year-old, who is out of contract at Elland Road in the summer, is wanted by Everton, Aston Villa and Sunderland, whilst Championship promotion-chasers Derby County are also monitoring the situation.
Peacock-Farrell, who joined Leeds from Middlesbrough in 2013, is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Whites, but has been included on the bench this season after injury to second-choice goalkeeper Ross Turnbull.
The young stopper is highly-rated by the coaching staff at Leeds, and manager Steve Evans believes that he can follow in footsteps of Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Alex Mowatt in making a first-team place his own.
As well as the possibility of losing Peacock-Farrell, Byram is another player who could be leaving Elland Road on a Bosman in the summer, as the 22-year-old is also out of contract and has so far turned down the offer of a new contract.
Boss Evans told SkySports this week: ‘He’s made it clear he doesn’t want to extend his contract beyond the summer. There are four or five Premier League clubs who would like to get Sam. They are all good clubs.’
Leeds are currently 13th in the Championship table with 32 points from 25 matches, and are also through to the FA Cup fourth round after a 2-0 win over Rotherham United, thanks to goals from debutant Mustapha Carayol and Souleymane Doukara.
