After joining from hometown club Motherwell for around £400k, McKinstry impressed in both the u18s and u23s, impressive in the latter age group despite his young age compared to his teammates.
Get Mckinstry in the first team ASAP WHAT a player #lufc— The Adelites (@theadelites) February 5, 2020
The Scotland youth international drew particular praise for his performances against Watford FC in a 6-0 victory for the u23 side, and for his showing in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup last season.
36' WHAT A GOAL! Miazek pulls off a great double save, McKinstry superbly drives up the pitch and into the Wolves box. His first strike is saved, but he knocks home the rebound! 0-2 pic.twitter.com/1OvAy2aXfT— Leeds United (@LUFC) January 24, 2020
As he is still only 17, I do not expect McKinstry to be one of the youngsters sent out on loan by Marcelo Bielsa this season - but it would be intriguing to see him get some first team football somewhere this season.
