Phil Hay of The Athletic has revealed that Leeds United are taking interest in Manchester City defender, Luke Mbete-Tatu.

The 17-year-old primarily plays centre-half but can also play as a left-back, with his ten starts in The Premier League 2 resulting in nine clean-sheets so far this season, with the young City defence conceding just one goal so far.

His form was recently rewarded by City gaffer, Pep Guardiola as Mbete-Tatu made the bench for The Sky-Blues in their game against Chelsea.

The Whites already have some success from signing Manchester City youngsters with Ian Poveda proving to be an exciting prospect, well-liked by Marcelo Bielsa and the fans so far.

Mbete-Tatu also has three England u16 caps and six England u15 caps, as well as an FA Youth Cup to his name. This has attracted the eyes of Leeds United, with Phil Hay reporting of Leeds’ “admiring glances“ of the English-Congolese defender.
