Leeds United could benefit by strengthening rivals with Perkins’ show of faith

Sonny Perkins needs first-team football to continue his rapid development as a footballer. The Leeds United forward made it abundantly clear last season with his eye-catching performances for the club’s Under-21s as the Whites won Premier League 2 Division 2 promotion.

Perkins bagged himself 13 goals at youth level in his first season at the club, following his move from West Ham United last summer. Part of that also came in the opening few months of the campaign, as the 19-year-old announced himself to United fans by bagging eight in his first seven games.
