Leeds United caught the eye during the summer transfer window when they completed the season-long loan signing of Arsenal starlet Eddie Nketiah.
The highly-rated striker is yet to make his first Championship start in Marcelo Bielsa’s team, although he does have three goals to his name already.
He has scored in both rounds of the Carabao Cup and will undoubtedly be chomping at the bit to start in the Championship.
Nketiah’s focus, for now, is on England under-21 duty. The 20-year-old already has four caps to his name and he will hope to add to his two international goals in the next week.
Following his recall to Aidy Boothroyd’s side, Nketiah has posted a message on Twitter stating his happiness at being back involved, tagging in his Arsenal team-mate Reiss Nelson:

Naturally, Arsenal fans were delighted with the tweet given that both players are rated very highly at the Emirates Stadium.
Nelson has featured twice in Unai Emery’s team this season and is looking to make his mark at Arsenal after a loan spell with Hoffenheim last term.
Supporters of the Gunners have taken to Twitter following Nketiah’s post and they can’t wait to see him back at Arsenal.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Arsenal fans on the back of the youngster’s post:
Best English striker
