Leeds United loannee Mathew Pennington could be set to make his spell at the club a permanent one in the future.
The 23-year-old centre-back signed for the Whites on a season-long-loan at the start of the campaign, and has since made nine appearances for the club.
Although he hasn’t been the most consistent performer for head coach Thomas Christiansen, Leeds seem keen to make his current loan deal into a permanent one in either January, or the summer.
Pennington is well thought of at his parent club Everton which could create implications should the Englishman choose to move to West Yorkshire on a full-time basis.
However, the defender hasn’t always shown his ability when playing in a Leeds shirt but the apparent interest to make his stay permanent and being held in such high regard at Everton could mean that Pennington is one for the future at Elland Road.
But this looks likely to materialise during the summer transfer window as oppose to the near future.
