  Bielsa must ruthlessly axe £4.5m-rated disaster vs SUFC, he's been holding Leeds back - opinion Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa must drop Tyler Roberts vs Sheffield United in the Premier League.The 22-year-old was sent home by Wales after breaching protocol, and Bielsa admitted that mistakes do have consequences.

That’s the views of former Scotland boss Alex McLeish, talking to Football Insider after Ross County manager John Hughes revealed the Whites “were after” the teenage centre-back prior to his loan move to County in January.

The 17-year-old, capable of playing as a centre-back or as a left-back, has impressed Hughes, turning out on nine occasions in recent months, scoring once.

Hjelde, who stands at 6 foot 1, is under contract at Celtic Park until 2022, and McLeish believes Marcelo Bielsa’s side could return for the Norwegian, claiming he could become a ‘terrific’ centre-back.

Orta could send major Bielsa message with 6 ft "leader" who's perfect for Leeds United - opinion

  Orta could send major Bielsa message with 6 ft Leeds are facing a transfer battle with Liverpool to sign AZ Alkmaar's Teun Koopmeiners.In a list of options suggested by The Athletic’s Phil Hay as potential cover for Kalvin Phillips, Koopmeiner’s name came into the discussion, with the suggestion that he could be set for a move away from his native Netherlands in the summer.

“Yeah, Leeds could. Scotland’s been a good hunting ground for a few of the big clubs.

“Celtic have, over the years, done good business with players like van Dijk. He’s not the only one they’ve sold for a big fee at the end of his Celtic career.

“If John’s young kid keeps progressing, his loanee, then there’s no doubting he can become another terrific foreign centre-half.

“It seems to be, over the years, the top teams in Scotland have gone for foreign centre-halves.”

Transfer Tavern take

Celtic appear to be losing a number of talented youngsters, and with Hjelde previously wanted by the Whites, we wouldn’t be surprised if the teenager moved on.

Liam Hughes joined Liverpool earlier this year, while Vincent Angelini and Karamoko Dembele look set for summer exits.

Hjelde may well be the next to look towards a Parkhead exit, and a move to Yorkshire could see him link up with Leeds’ talented Under-23 side with a view to progress into Bielsa’s first-team plans down the line.

Considering Hughes’ glowing praise of the youngster, this would certainly be a blow for Celtic if they lost the chance to develop him into a more expensive player before selling, something they did so successfully with Virgil van Dijk and countless others.
