Revealed: 59% of Leeds fans want Marcelo Bielsa to move for George Hirst in January

The majority of Leeds fans that answered our recent poll want the club to make a move for former Sheffield Wednesday youngster George Hirst in January.

Journalist Phil Hay recently told the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Inside Elland Road podcast that the club could sign Hirst fairly cheaply in the January transfer window.

The 19-year-old joined Belgian second division club OH Leuven, who are managed by Nigel Pearson, in the summer. However, Hay also claimed that Leeds were interested in the highly-rated striker during the summer, but buying from abroad now will be cheaper than a direct Championship rival.

The 6ft 3in front-man signed his first professional contract with Wedensday in March 2016 and made his first-team debut in the EFL Cup against Cambridge United later that same year.

He has also represented England at every youth level since U17 and was in the victorious squads for the 2017 U20 Toulon Tournament and the 2018 UEFA European U19 Championships. Check out the full results of our poll below.
