Premier League sides circling around Leeds United teenager Lewis Cook.

Leeds United have offered teenage midfielder Lewis Cook a new contract at White Hart Lane after the prodigious teenager’s performances in the Championship for the club this season attracted the attention of some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Cook has already made 20 league appearances for the white this season at the tender age of 17, after breaking into the first team at the start of the season under David Hockaday, and has survived two managerial changes at Elland Road already under the enigmatic ownership of Massimo Cellino.

Cook’s displays have attracted the attention of four of English football’s biggest clubs, with the report suggesting that Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are all tracking the progress of Cook ahead of potential moves for the young Englishman.

Club president Cellino is desperate to keep one of the club’s brightest prospects at Elland Road and is set to offer Cook a contract of £4,000 a week to stay at the club – although this could prove to be small change compared to what he could be offered if one of the Premier League giants decides to push ahead with their interest.
