Manchester City prospect Kian Breckin is emerging as a target for Leeds United.
The 19-year-old is the son of former Nottingham Forest and Wigan defender, Ian ‘Breckinbauer’ Breckin, and has shown some silky touches of his own playing in midfield for City’s U21s this season.
Breckin has four years left on his contract but with a difficult pathway ahead, City may sell if the right offer comes in.
Leeds, who admire a number of City’s youngsters, could face competition from Newcastle United for Breckin.
The youngster previously caught the eye of Barcelona’s scouts with a string of impressive performances at tournaments and for City’s youth teams.

Breckin is highly regarded after joining City as an 11-year-old while his father Ian is now a scout.
The central midfielder has yet to make a senior start for Pep Guardiola’s side, who currently sit at the top of the Premier League table.
However, Breckin has been a regular in Premier League 2, scoring eight times in 24 appearances.
Leeds United also like Shea Charles and have a long-standing interest in James McAtee.
