Derby County

Leeds join Wolves and Sheffield United in race to sign impressive winger



Leeds United and Sheffield United are among a number of clubs interested in signing Carlisle United winger Liam McCarron this summer, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old was given a chance to impress under United boss Steven Pressley in the middle stages of the campaign, making 20 appearances in all competitions for the Cumbrians.

The winger put in a series of eye-catching performances for the Cumbrian club, who narrowly missed out on a place in the League Two play-offs last term.

It is believed that Leeds United, Sheffield United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County have all been present to watch McCarron at some point last season, and are keen on signing the versatile attacker this summer.

Carlisle value McCarron at a price of around £250,000, therefore any of the reported teams would find it easy to secure his services this summer if the amount is to be believed.

Marcelo Bielsa has nurtured plenty of talented youngsters since his arrival at Elland Road, and he will be hoping that McCarron would be the next rising star to follow in the footsteps of Jack Clarke and Jamie Shackleton.

The Verdict

McCarron is a huge talent who really impressed in League Two last season, and clearly has a big future ahead of him.

He needs to think carefully about his next move, as he needs to lay some foundations down and find a club that give him regular game-time and make him a better player.

Wolves and Sheffield United are probably favourites to sign him, but Derby and Leeds have some very talented academies who would be perfect for him.
