Leeds United have invited Hastings United’s Adam Lovatt for a trial, according to the Bexhill-On-Sea Observer.
The midfielder has become a man in demand amongst professional football clubs after impressing over the past couple of seasons.
Highly-flying Championship side Leeds are to take a look at him for a week from the 3rd December. He was linked with some Premier League sides earlier in this campaign, such as Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion.
Lovatt, who is 18 years-old, has risen through the youth programme at Hastings and is being tipped for a glowing future in the game by them. The Arrows play their football in the Isthmian League South Division, which is the seventh tier of English football.
Leeds have started to plan for the future over recent times and have some decent young players in their ranks. They are not looking to stop there, and continue to give youth a chance by handing Lovatt a trial.
Lovatt has earned the plaudits from his manager, Chris Agutter, who has told their official club website: “Adam is a great lad and has proved a model semi-professional since signing a contract with the club. He has developed both his stature and game considerably since he was promoted to the first team squad and will thoroughly deserve the chance at some point to move on into full-time professional football.”
This is a story for Leeds fans to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks. Could he be a star the Yorkshire in the future?
