Leeds should take a punt on Domingos Quina who could be available on the cheap

Leeds United transfer target Domingos Quina is set to be offered a new contract by West Ham United to ward off interest from any potential suitors, according to Sky Sports.

What’s the story?

The 18-year-old midfielder joined West Ham in 2016 after having spent time at Chelsea’s and Benfica’s academies but is yet to make a senior Premier League appearance for the Hammers.

The hot prospect was touted as one of the top young talents in Europe by West Ham’s academy director Terry Westley when he signed for the club but he hasn’t yet hit the heights many thought he would.

He has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Leeds this summer, but now it appears West Ham are reluctant to see him leave and the youngster could be offered a new deal.

Wait in the wings

According to Sky Sports, if Quina rejects the offer of a new contract at the Hammers, he could be available for as little as £600,000 and will be on a high after just helping Portugal win the Under-19 Euro Championships.

Of course, it will be difficult to out-muscle Barcelona if they retain their interest but Leeds could offer Quina a much quicker route to first team football and he would add much-needed flair and creativity in midfield.

It all hangs in the balance at the moment and it’s up to the player where he sees his future, but should he reject a new deal at the London Stadium, Leeds should be quick onto the scene to snap up the highly-rated youngster.
