Leeds' potential under-23 side for 2022/23: Hall and Perkins included

Leeds United continue to target new signings for their under-23 side, with The Athletic reporting that they are lining up deals for both George Hall and Sonny Perkins.

It would be a coup to sign either player in the coming months. But Leeds have done some impressive business in the market when it comes to youngsters in recent years. So it should not be a surprise if Victor Orta lands one, or even both, of them.

Next season will be an interesting one for the under-23s. Jesse Marsch has seemingly promoted the likes of Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, Crysencio Summerville and Charlie Cresswell.

And you would imagine that those players will be more involved with first-team squads than the under-23s next term – if they do not leave on loan.

So the side may look quite different next year. With that in mind, here is a look at a potential under-23 XI which includes the two transfer targets…

10 Most EXPENSIVE Footballers Ever | NEYMAR IN 2ND?!

Dani van den Heuvel

The Dutchman is likely to play if Kristoffer Klaesson remains in the first-team fold.

Harvey Sutcliffe

Sutcliffe was involved in first-team training on a few occasions this past season. It may be time for him to establish himself as first-choice.

Kris Moore

With Cresswell and Leo Hjelde likely to be involved elsewhere, Kris Moore has a real opportunity to cement himself as the leader of a new-look back-four.

Jeremiah Mullen

One of the players to really look out for is Jeremiah Mullen. He looks a class act in possession. And he may soon add his name to the list of brilliant, young centre-backs at the club.

Liam McCarron

Liam McCarron got plenty of experience at left-back this past season. With Leeds potentially adopting a more narrow system, the defensive role may present his best route into the side.

George Hall

Leeds want to sign Hall from Birmingham. He has made his Championship debut and could be a real star of the future.

Archie Gray

Archie Gray never got the chance to make a first-team debut this past season. But you can surely expect the 16-year-old to be a much more regular fixture in the under-23 side.

Max Dean

Max Dean will need to step up with Gelhardt, Greenwood and Summerville potentially becoming permanent first-team players. But Dean is yet to meet a challenge he did not like.

Sean McGurk

The number 10 role could be absolutely perfect for McGurk. He showed glimpses of his quality this past season. But he will be one Leeds look to to really step up.

Mateo Joseph

Joseph scored once following his January arrival at Elland Road. But he stood out on several occasions. He will want to be pushing for a potential first-team chance next year.

Sonny Perkins

If Leeds sign Perkins, it could be a really exciting piece of business. He scored 10 goals in Premier League 2 this past season. And he will not want to be involved with the Whites’ under-23s for too long if he decides to leave West Ham.
