Marcelo Bielsa is keen to keep the 19-year-old attacker at Elland Road for the second half of the season. He has only played once for the Whites’ first-team, coming off the bench in their cup loss to Crawley Town.

However, with Bielsa keen to keep Greenwood at the club, it will be interesting to see if he breaks into the senior picture over the course of the second half of the campaign.

The youngster has played 20 times for the club’s Under-23s side so far this season. In the process, he has netted an impressive six goals, including a hat-trick against Sunderland.

As for Swansea, it awaits to be seen if they turn their attention to new targets. The Welsh side are pressed for time, with the window closing at 11pm today.
