As per one of the latest reports by the Express, Leeds United are looking keen to sign Bristol City’s youngster, Josh Brownhill, in the January transfer window. However, it would not be easy to make Brownhill sign on the dotted line as the likes of Leicester City and Newcastle United are also very much in the race to get him. His contract expires at the end of the season and no wonder why he is on the radar of some quality clubs.
Brownhill emerged through the youth ranks of Warrington Town, Manchester United and Preston North End and having impressed with the senior side of the Lilywhites, Bristol City lured him to Ashton Gate Stadium in the summer of 2016 after his contract with Preston expired. He has unarguably been one of the best players under the tutelage of Lee Johnson’s side, who are enjoying a stupendous season, having collected 40 points from 21 games and are placed 3rd in the league table.
So far this season, the 21-year-old has mustered 20 Championship appearances, whilst which he has scored 3 goals and registered 3 assists, and has also made 1.5 tackles and 1.5 clearances per game on an average. Capable of plying his trade as a central midfielder and central defensive midfielder, he shields the backline in a notable manner, reads the attacking endeavours of the opposition pretty well and attempts to make his side maraud forward time and again.
His vision, ability to create spaces for himself and the knack to score goals makes him an appealing commodity for any Championship side which are looking for a midfielder with calibre. He is still young and has the time to excel further in the days to come by brushing himself adequately. The Robins are obviously reluctant to let Brownhill leave anytime soon and are in the negotiating stage to extend his stay with the club and tie him down with a long-term deal.
While the talents of the youngster is the prima facie evidence for the interest from Leeds United, Thomas Christiansen already has a cluster of decent central midfielders in his ranks and there is no apparent need to sign one more. The Whites have other problems to solve, such as their defence, and signing Brownhill should not be a priority for them. Nonetheless, he would be a delightful addition to beef up their squad and it is up to the manager to see whether he actually needs him or not.
