Liverpool scout Leeds whizkid Leif Davis as backup for left-back Andy Robertson

LIVERPOOL and Bournemouth have been checking out Leeds’ whizkid Leif Davis.
The highly-rated left-back, 19, made an earlier breakthrough than expected this season due to the Whites’ injury problems at the back.

The Geordie only joined Leeds from Morecambe last summer as part of their development squad but ended up making five appearances.
He featured in four Championship games for the Yorkshire outfit – with his side winning each of the games he played in.
Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan and would be keen to develop him further at Elland Road next term should the Argentine stay at the club.
But Liverpool, who are likely to release Alberto Moreno, are looking for back-up to established star Andy Robertson and are monitoring Davis’ progress.
Bournemouth are also keeping tabs on the £4million-rated starlet and have a track record of signing exciting young British talent from the lower divisions.

They did just that with the £13m signing of versatile defender Lloyd Kelly from Bristol City over the weekend.
Davis – who made his professional debut against Aston Villa in December – is tied down with Leeds until 2021.
The defender hasn’t played since February after a knee injury cut short his season.
