Leeds United have expressed an interest in taking Manchester City midfielder Emyr Huws on a season-long loan for next term, [football] direct news understands. The 20-year-old’s rise to prominence has occurred since the turn of the year, having made his senior debut for the Blues and broken into the Wales first team. His first cap came in March, when he replaced injured Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey against Iceland. He has also won widespread praise for his performances in an ongoing loan stint at Championship outfit Birmingham City, where he has picked up several man of the match awards. A source close to the Etihad Stadium told FDN Leeds are keen to make Huws a key member of their side next season in a bid to launch an ambitious promotion push. However, City boss Manuel Pellegrini is yet to decide whether to elevate him into the Blues’ senior set-up, amid long-standing concerns over the fitness of fellow midfield man Jack Rodwell.
