Leeds, Brighton watching Man City defender Taylor Harwood-Bellis

Leeds United are watching Manchester City defender Taylor Harwood-Bellis during his loan with Blackburn Rovers.

The Manchester Evening News says Leeds, along with Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford have been keeping tabs on the 19-year-old, who is currently on loan at Blackburn Rovers.

A number of Bundesliga clubs are also said to be eyeing up the centre-back, continuing the growing trend of German sides snapping up young talent developed in England.

The centre-back has enjoyed an impressive youth team career at City, captaining the club's under-18s to victory in the FA Youth Cup last year.

He is highly-rated at the Etihad, having already made eight first-team appearances for the club, including in the Champions League, and signing a contract until 2024.

The Stockport-born youngster, who has been capped at England under-20 level, has been earning rave reviews on loan at Blackburn, and he has impressed Pep Guardiola during first-team training sessions at City.
