Leeds United look set to make a move for young Scottish wonderkid Harry Cochrane.
The 16-year old is said to be high on Leeds' radar as they continue to bring in young stars from all over the globe.
Currently at Hearts, Cochrane has made his name well known having featured in Hearts' last five fixtures playing as a central midfielder.
It's reported by the Scotsman that Leeds are willing to table a bid of over £500,000 to start the bidding. However, with the youngster just putting pen to paper on his first pro deal until 2020, it may take a little more to convince the Scottish Premiership side.
It is thought that this deal is the brain child of both Director of Football Victor Orta and Head Coach Thomas Christiansen, with the pair both taking a keen interest in the player. Orta is also rumoured to have visited Scotland in order to assess the talent himself.
This is not the only young player Leeds have looked to sign early ahead of any potential suitors higher in the pecking order making a move.
The Whites made a number of deals for young talent from Spain including Oriol Rey, Alex Machuca, Oussime Siddiki, Adrian Balboa and Kun Temenuzkhov as they look to grow more in house talent.
If Leeds can confirm the quick purchase of Cochrane, the club could be set for a very young talent that may even challenge current first team prospects Kalvin Phillips and Ronaldo Vieira.
What's your opinion? Should Leeds be focussing on more experience it is this just a promising deal the club should make? Have your say in the comments below.
