Leeds linked with big money move for Jarrod Bowen - not that anyone believes it will happen

Jarrod Bowen is one of the best in the division, but I would be amazed if Leeds signed him.

Leeds United are interested in a move totaling £18m for Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen, according to a report in that newspaper that is banned in Liverpool.

Alan Nixon’s report says that Leeds could pay a loan fee of £3m to take Bowen until the end of the season, before paying a further £15m if the Whites are promoted to the Premier League.

The winger can also play as a number 10 or a striker and has scored 54 goals in 128 matches for the Tigers, scoring 17 in 29 this season.

Every other journalist addressing the story has said there is no truth to it, but Nixon is sticking to his guns.

Leeds did a similar type of deal to sign Helder Costa from Wolves in the summer, and attempted a similar deal for Daniel James from Swansea City before the Wales winger’s move to Manchester United.

Do you think there is any chance of Leeds pulling this off? Would you be happy with Jarrod Bowen as a signing? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @ThruItAllLUFC.
