Some Leeds fans seem glad that the move is happening and they seem optimistic about the youngster’s chances, however, a couple were more saddened by the rumour.

Davis is now 21, but his game time with the Leeds first team hasn’t exactly increased since he made his debut. He played only 31 minutes of Premier League football last season, playing the majority of his games in the Premier League 2 for the Under-23 side.

Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

With Leeds having signed Junior Firpo from Barcelona, Davis’ chances in the first team may reduce further. So if Davis can get some regular football at Bournemouth in the Championship and then return to Leeds as a better player, he may have a chance at playing for the senior Whites team come the following summer.
