Ben Pearson has been in impressive form for Preston North End this season, with his performances key to the club pressing for an unlikely top-six finish in the Championship.
The 23-year-old actually came through the youth system at Manchester United, but never made a first-team appearance for the English giants before leaving for Preston in January 2016.
The midfielder is fast closing on 100 appearances for his current club, and there is no question that he has developed into a very strong Championship midfielder.
It would not be a surprise if a number of clubs were having a look at the former England Under-20 international when considering that Preston would surely be vulnerable to any bid that arrived in this summer’s transfer window.
Leeds United fans are always extremely vocal on social media, and a selection have taken to Twitter to call on their club to move for Pearson this summer.
Some of the reaction from the Leeds supporters can be seen below:

Always rated him – Grayson really did build a good team at Preston and Alex Neil has really run with it
