Former All Leeds TV presenter Joe Wainman has dropped his verdict amid rumours Leeds United are vying to sign Hibernian left-back Josh Doig.
Marcelo Bielsa has already strengthened his defensive options by welcoming Junior Firpo to the club after concluding a £13million deal with Barcelona last month.
However, Ezgjan Alioski’s decision to turn down a new Whites deal in favour of a lucrative contract with Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ahli has resulted in Leeds boss Bielsa being keen to add further reinforcements.
Would Doig be a good signing for Leeds?
Leeds have been told they will have to fork out £5million if they want to persuade Scottish Premiership side Hibernian to sell their prized asset.
However, Leeds are not the only club in the running and Hibs’ sporting director Graeme Mathie has described suitors as undervaluing Doig.
Doig made 35 appearances last season and Wainman believes the highly-rated teenager is the perfect option for Bielsa.
He told Football FanCast: “We’ve been linked with Josh Doig, who plays in Scotland.
“He is a young guy who has been coined as the next Kieran Tierney. He seems to be the one that’s on the radar because we have let a lot go. Ideally, we need another left-back.”
