Leeds United have entered official talks over the future of West Ham United starlet Domingos Quina, according to the Mirror.

The 18-year-old winger is yet to make his senior league debut for the Hammers but has already earned considerable fanfare after receiving caps for the Portuguese under-17, under-18 and under-19 sides over the last three years.

Leeds United have been tracking the teenager for some time now, and according to reports this morning from the Mirror, the club has made official contact with West Ham surrounding a deal to bring the Portuguese youth international to Elland Road this summer.

Signing Quina, who moved to West Ham in 2015 after coming through the academy at London rivals Chelsea, would be a step in the right direction for the Whites in their transfer business following a string of transfer disappointments.

After missing out on attacking targets Matej Vydra and Abel Hernandez as well as highly-rated keeper Angus Gunn, Leeds fans have been getting frustrated with their club’s transfer business so far this summer, but securing the services of Quina would go some way to improving the mood around the club.

A move to Elland Road could be beneficial for Quina as a player too, with first-team opportunities proving hard to come by at West Ham – the Portuguese winger’s only appearance to date was a nine-minute cameo in a Europa League clash with Domzale.

The deal looks far from finished yet, but with just a year remaining on Quina’s contract, the two clubs are likely to come to an agreement in the near future.
