League Two outfit, Stevenage, finished merely three points outside the League Two play-offs last term and during a season which was a decent one for Stevenage, a young gun in the shape of Ben Kennedy was one of the promising players for the club. Kennedy banged 9 goals and piled 9 assists to his name last season and he really impressed the scouts who went to decipher his calibre on a regular basis to the Lamex Stadium.

Given his age and the traits he has put on display, the all-action midfielder has piled many admirers ever since paving his way to the senior side of his current employers. In order to fend off interests from the clubs of bigger stature, Stevenage handed a new deal to the starlet. But apparently, that seems to be unlikely to deter clubs like Leeds United who are plotting for a move to lure him to the Elland Road as per the latest reports.

The Whites are breathing a new life under the tutelage of their new manager Thomas Christiansen who is doing a lot of chores behind the scenes to hit the right chords in the summer transfer window.

It goes without saying that Christiansen would be itching to make full use of the pedestal which was garnered by Garry Monk and securing a promotion spot would unarguably be his prime objective, something which Monk failed to manoeuvre.

The interest from the Peacocks makes perfect sense, for Kennedy thrived meticulously, particularly in the final third. Having emerged through the youth ranks of Stevenage, the 20-year-old took very little time to set himself up pretty well with the senior side as he went on to make 80 appearances for the club.

The former APEOL boss is vouching for prospective assets to beef up the creative spark in his attacking midfield sector and Kennedy has emerged as one of his targets in his wish-list. Kennedy toils really hard, always intends to make something happen and has a knack to bang goals as well as to carve goal scoring opportunities for his employers, which makes him an appealing prospect.

Besides, he orchestrates the midfield with a classy aura and is regarded as one of the finest players in League Two at this stroke of the hour. If the deal actually materialises, Christiansen would be able to lay his hands on a blossoming youngster who has the ability in his to make Leeds United a fearsome side next season.
