Was diving around lush green grass not so long ago but my keyboard is all I have now. An avid observer of detail in sports with a passion to make myself heard. Can find me playing on a field if not in front of my screen.

Having failed to find any consistency this season in the Championship, Paul Heckingbottom’s Leeds United have very little chance to qualify for the playoffs but the manager will be desperate to finish the season on a high.

He is already looking for players who can improve the squad next season and has been scouting for some of the finest stars in the game and one player that is exciting many fans of the club is League One star Jon Nolan.

A product of the academy at Everton, the 25-year old played for five different English clubs before joining Shrewsbury Town at the start of the current season. He made 30 appearances for Chesterfield last season and took no time to establish himself in the first team under Paul Hurst at New Meadow this season.

He has eight goals and six assists in 37 League 1 appearances and has already made 45 appearances for the club in all competition to date. He has represented the England C side but has a lot of work to do if he wants to represent the Three Lions in his career. At 25, he can still learn a lot moving to the Championship and will be a decent coup for most teams in the competition.

Reports suggest that a couple of top-flight clubs are interested in his signature along with Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, Norwich City and Ipswich Town have also been credited with an interest in the player for the summer.

A central midfielder, known for his positioning and movement in the middle of the park, Nolan is a quick and agile presence in the midfield, who is adept at turning away from danger and setting up his team on the attack.

He is hard to mark, thanks to his pace and dribbling while his willingness to run himself into the ground for his side in every game makes him that much more effective. He can produce passes that break defences from a deep-lying role and is also adept at controlling the tempo of the game.

At just 25, he will only get better and deserves to play in the higher tiers of English football. But where does he fit in at Leeds?

The Peacocks have stuck with Eunan O’Kane, Kalvin Philipps and Ronaldo Vieira as the first choice midfielders in a 4-2-3-1 system this season. Nolan can not only add numbers to this role but give the side a different dimension that can improve their chances next season.

He is established in League 1 but has little no experience of the Championship. So do you think he is the right man for Leeds?
