Journalist Conor McGilligan has expressed his excitement after Leeds United were linked with a move for James McAtee.
According to a recent report in The Athletic, the Whites are believed to be ‘very keen’ on a move for the Manchester City midfielder – and he could be used as a way of getting the Kalvin Phillips transfer over the line.
Reacting to the news while talking on the One Leeds Fan Channel, McGilligan couldn’t help but outline just how happy he’d been with the claim, calling it an ‘exciting’ update.
He said: “There’s been a lot of talk about James McAtee. Now, James McAtee is a Manchester City midfielder in the Under-23s.
“And it’s exciting this one, because McAtee is a really, really decent player.”
