Leeds United looking towards PSG youth to help with return to the Premier League

Leeds United are said to be interested in PSG midfielder Edouard Michut with the young Frenchman having returned to the French champions after a loan spell with Sunderland.

The 20 year old spent a season long loan with Sunderland racking up 28 appearances for the Championship Club.

Leeds are amongst several clubs interested in Michut but any deal would have to be decided by PSG in the coming days.

Sunderland did have the chance to make a permanent deal for the young Frenchman but sources close to both parties said that it was mutually agreed that Michut would return to France at the end of the deal.

While at Sunderland he was working alongside current Leeds player Joe Gelhardt and Academy Player Jack Clarke.

Could Michut be what Leeds need as part of their masterplan to grace the top flight once more or will more time be needed and more money spent?
