Leeds United set to sign Scottish rising star Lewis Pirie from Aberdeen

Leeds United have agreed a deal worth £200k to sign Scottish rising star, Lewis Pirie from Aberdeen, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 2007-born Scot will join Leeds in a deal worth £200,000 after impressing with the Aberdeen and Scotland international youth setup, scoring 51 goals last season.

Such form will always attract interest from top clubs in Scotland and England. The 16-year-old has been highly sought after in recent transfer windows with interest from the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Brighton, Everton, and Sheffield United.

Scottish Champions, Celtic also indicated interest as it is their culture to snap up some of the best Scottish talents. The domestic champions showed an interest in the striker during the January transfer window, but a deal failed to materialize.

Pirie won’t go directly into the first team having not made his senior debut as of yet. However, he is an exciting prospect that has displayed a lot of potential in competing at the underage level.

Leeds will continue his development in the academy and slowly integrate him into the first team setup.

The Whites will be looking to make several signings this summer in a bid to regain promotion back to the Premier League. He will be Daniel Farke’s first signing since joining as Leeds manager.

The addition of Pirie may not be the high-profile signing that Leeds fans are eagerly anticipating at Elland Road.

However, it is imperative to applaud Leeds’s commitment to strengthening their youth squad, indicating their dedication to a promising and enhanced future.
