Leeds target has rejected a deal from his club because he wants to join Farke-Newspaper report

Leeds United target Lewis Pirie is set to travel to Yorkshire for a medical imminently, as reports in Scotland reveal further details on the 16 year-old’s agreement with the Whites.

Who are Leeds signing in 2023?

Once the acquisition is formally agreed upon and completed, Daniel Farke appears to be in for a very busy summer. The new manager is likely to want to rebuild the team and remodel it in his image.

In order to control transfer activity this summer, the Elland Road club hired Nick Hammond as an interim football advisor. A number of departures are anticipated to begin in Yorkshire, as center-back Robin Koch has already secured a transfer after joining Eintracht Frankfurt, and Brenden Aaronson and Marc Roca are not thought to be too far behind.

According to Phil Hay, a reputable source, new goalkeepers, left backs, center backs, midfielders, and forwards might all be signed. Karl Darlow of Newcastle United is reportedly a prospective goalkeeper target.

According to Hay, the major aim to bolster the center of defense appears to be Liverpool center-back Nat Phillips, and Gustavo Hamer of Coventry City has long been mentioned as a potential midfield addition.


Pirie, an Aberdeen starlet, is obviously the first item on the list; rumors of a move began to circulate over the week, and on Friday morning, Fabrizio Romano shared that progress had been made in negotiations, disclosing that a contract had been reached at a price of about £200,000.

According to a recent update from sources in Canada (The Daily Record print edition, July 8, page 50), who are probably more informed at this point, Leeds supporters have many reasons to be thrilled about this agreement.

That is because Pirie has actually rejected an offer of new terms with current club Aberdeen. As a result, it appears the striker is really dead set on becoming a star at Leeds, which is what all fans want to hear about their new arrivals. In addition, the fee is less than initially reported, with the initial cost just £150,000.

Pirie has an upcoming medical appointment scheduled, and it’s believed that he’s now in route to Yorkshire. The deal will probably be officially revealed the following week.

How good is Lewis Pirie?

Pirie’s record at the youth level is impressive—according to Romano, he scored 51 goals for club and nation last season—so this appears to be a very intriguing acquisition for Leeds. The adolescent is likely to start out playing for Thorp Arch’s youth teams, potentially with an eye toward obtaining some cup experience this year or even starting a loan to a lower league.

Don’t be surprised to see Pirie in the first team on a regular basis soon, given his prolific play at the academy level. Leeds has proven to be one of the best in the country for giving chances to youngsters, becoming the first team in Premier League history to give eight teenagers their debuts in one season back when Marcelo Bielsa was in charge.

In Yorkshire, players like Joe Gelhardt and Crysencio Summerville have flourished after making the transition from youth to senior football, and Pirie can potentially do the same or even better.
