Man United forward has today joined Leeds United

Leeds United have taken teenage forwards Mason Cotcher and Majid Balogun on trial as the Championship outfit looks to strengthen their academy. 

That is according to LUFC Youth, who states that the two players are currently free agents and that Leeds are willing to give them a chance through a trial.

Cotcher left Sunderland last summer and was training with Arsenal earlier this season amid interest from Rangers, while Balogun joined Man United as an under-14s player two years ago.

Producing talent is as important as ever for English clubs due to recent run-ins with Financial Fair Play regulations as it helps add players to the senior squad and then sell them for 100% profit.

Leeds have been actively looking to add highly-rated youngsters to their academy set-up in recent years and this shows that this is continuing.

Daniel Farke is a coach who is willing to give young players a chance if they are good enough, with Archie Gray being the example to follow.
