Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing highly-rated Leeds United midfielder Archie Gray as the club look to bolster our impressive youth set-up.

According to The Athletic, the 16-year-old is attracting interest from the Premier League’s leading clubs, including City.

The ball-playing midfielder is highly regarded at Elland Road, where he is currently on a scholarship and will be offered a professional contract when he turns 17 next March – the youngster only just received his GCSE grades this summer.

Leeds are eager to tie the player down to a professional contract in order to ward off any potential suitors.
