Leeds United Keen On Bringing Former Blackburn Rovers Winger In: Good Fit For Heckingbottom?

Leeds United have joined the race to sign Serhat Tasdemir from the English Fifth Tier side, AFC Fylde this summer. Major teams from the Premier League are ready to fight for the teenage midfielder. Tasdemir impressed plenty with his 5 goals and 4 assists in 28 appearances last season being just 17 years old. He mostly enjoys playing from the left but can appear centrally as well.

His influential figures have helped his team finish 7th in the league standings and with the highest goal tally in the entire division. He signed his first professional contract in October 2017 and 8 months later, has been named in the division’s U23 Team Of The Season.

Tasdemir could very well be one of the best talents at AFC Fylde and excelled at every stage. He signed with the Blackburn Rovers youth academy, where he scored an outstanding hat-trick against AFC Darwen in the 2016/17 season. The 17-year-old also made his league debut against Worcester City and played a small role in his team’s National League North title win.

Manager, Dave Challinor heaped praises over the youngster as he said, “Serhat has a very bright future ahead of him. He is still only very young and he must take on board what we tell him but if he does that and keeps working hard then he has got a great chance. It was great to see him get his goal at the weekend. He really helped to change the game. He has been training well and is already an integral part of the squad.”

Leeds have just undergone a torrid spell in the English second-division, finishing 13th in the league and sabotaging their own chances of making a run for the playoffs. Desperation has spread amongst the Whites fans who have been left with nothing but frustration over their team’s incompetence in the past season.

After the sacking of their former manager Thomas Christiansen, Paul Heckingbottom could not work up a magic run to stop the team’s steep fall from grace. United could do well with some players with the capabilities of Tasdemir. He has the years in his favour to develop into a star in the game and Leeds United might just be able to provide him with that platform. It is now to be seen whether the 17-year-old makes a move to the Elland Road club and whether the move becomes a fruitful one for him in the near future.
