Gary Mc.Allister has gone back to his old club Liverpool, to bring two of their youngsters to Leeds for a trial.
According to the Yorkshire Post, Leeds have invited Krisztian Nemeth and Astrit Ajdarevic to join up with the club for pre-season training, with a view to signing both players on loan. The talented teenagers will be given the chance to work alongside United's first-team squad next month, and McAllister will then decide whether to add them to the squad for next season.
Nemeth – signed by Liverpool from MTK Hungaria last summer – is a 19-year-old striker whose goals helped the Anfield club win the FA Premier Reserve League title last season and earned him a call-up to Hungary's international squad last month. He is close to a senior debut after some impressive performances with Liverpool's second string, Rafa Benitez might agree to let him experience first team football at Leeds.
The forward scored nine times for the Anfield reserves during 2007-08, guiding them to the top of Premier Reserve League North and playing his part in their 3-0 victory over southern league champions Aston Villa.
Leeds are also keen to assess Ajdarevic, an 18-year-old left-sided midfielder who was added to Liverpool's academy ranks 18 months ago. The Kosovan-born player holds Swedish nationality and played for the Scandinavian country in the recent UEFA European Under-17 Championship, so thankfully under EEC rules there would be no problem getting him a work permit. He was also involved with the Liverpool side which lifted the FA Youth Cup last year.
Let’s hope that Macca likes what he sees and that he can persuade these two to join us for a season. By all accounts they have the talent give us a further advantage over the clubs we will be facing next season.
