Wolves have made an enquiry about signing Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The 21-year-old impressed last season as he broke into the Leeds United first-team in the Championship. He is being tipped for a big future at Elland Road but they will now have to fend off interest in him this summer.

Newly-promoted Premier League side Wolves are showing an interest in signing Peacock-Farrell. They are preparing for life in the top flight next season and are looking to provide some more competition and back-up to their goalkeeper, John Ruddy.

Peacock-Farrell has made the headlines in recent weeks after making his senior debut for Northern Ireland on 30th May against Panama. He had previously represented them at Under-21 level.

He started his career at Middlesbrough but was released by the North-East side in 2013 so joined Leeds. He made his first-team debut for the Whites in April 2016 in a home fixture against QPR. Peacock-Farrell was loaned out to York City in October 2017 on a one-month loan and played four games for them in the National League North.

Peacock-Farrell got his chance for Leeds in the latter part of last season and was solid between the sticks despite his age. He is now being rewarded by interest in him from the Premier League.

There is no doubt that he is one for the future and Leeds do see him as their long-term number one so will be hoping that Wolves’ interest in him is seen off.
