Everybody knows that Leeds United have a great youth system that has produced many players of Premier League standard, but now Barcelona are getting in on the act.
Elliott Kebbie, 16, it seems is poised to join Barcelona in a transfer that will make Arsenal fans chuckle. Barcelona have done everything by the book, and Leeds United are happy with the way Barcelona have acted, but Arsenal have signed players from Barcelona through the right channels. The rules may favour English sides, but Barcelona should be angry with the rules, not when the likes of Arsenal or Manchester United sign a player from their youth set up.
Compensation will be set up for the transfer of Kebbie, who has been at Leeds United since he was 8, and who knows maybe Leeds United will be able to get one or two players on loan.
Players that have come through Leeds United’s Youth Academy; Alan Smith, Stephen McHale, Frazer Richardson, Matthew Kilgallon, James Milner, Aaron Lennon, Danny Rose & Jonathan Howson
