Leeds’ start to this season was a hectic one, but with Daniel Farke’s guidance, has settled down to see the Whites firmly in the hunt for promotion.
One player who has been instrumental for that has been Ethan Ampadu, who has seriously impressed since his £7million move from Chelsea, with Robbie Savage speaking to TEAMtalk about his performances so far:
“Ethan Ampadu – I am a huge fan of his. He’s been out on loan a few times but now he’s got his permanent move to Leeds and I think for the money they paid – and £7m is the figure suggested – it’s an absolute bargain for Leeds United – one of the signings of the season. The way Daniel Farke wants to play is perfect to get the best out of him.”
In terms of his impact at Leeds and how Ampadu fits in at his new club, Savage continued:
“So listen, Ampadu and Leeds United are perfect for one another. Leeds United are a fantastic football club, a big football club, passionate fanbase and they’re third in the Championship with a real opportunity of bouncing back.“But for Ethan Ampadu, to be playing regular football, not only will it benefit him, it’ll benefit Wales and most of all, Leeds United. So at £7m, you’ve got to say so far he’s one of the bargains of the season.”
