Leeds United are submitting an improved offer for Wigan Athletic forward Sean McGurk as they look to sign another rising star, Football Insider can reveal.
The newly-promoted Premier League club completed the captures of 18-year-old pair Joe Gelhardt and Cody Drameh from Wigan and Fulham.
Now United are keen to push through the signing of McGurk, a 17-year-old winger who is also attacking interest from Tottenham.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Leeds’ opening offer for McGurk of £30,000 was knocked back by Wigan.
The Yorkshire giants are expected to make a new formal move to swing the deal following the cash-strapped Lancashire outfit’s administration.
