Newcastle and Everton keen on signing Leeds sensation

According to a report published by Football Insider, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Everton are interested in signing Mallik Wilks.

The report added that scouts from Premier League sides have been monitoring the progress of the youngster for the past 18 months since he broke into the first team.

Middlesbrough boss is a fan of Wilks having worked with him while managing the Whiites last season while Everton and Newcastle also believe that he could be a future star.

The 18 year old joined League two side Accrington in August and has so far managed to score three goals from 15 appearances.

Selling the youngster at this stage would not be in Leeds best interests, however it is hard to see Wilks remaining at Elland Road for long considering that he has a growing reputation while Leeds are a Championship club.

He will likely be tempted by the opportunity to move to a club which plays in the Premier League.
