Leeds United transfer latest: Millwall set to beat Championship rivals to sign Charlie Cresswell on loan

HIGHLY-RATED Leeds United centre-half Charlie Cresswell is set to join Millwall on loan next week, according to reports in the capital.

Cresswell, 19, impressed in a strong 2021-22 campaign for United, which saw him make six appearances for the first team and also represent England under-19s. He also captained Leeds under-23's side.

His form has been monitored by several Championship sides - with Sunderland linked with a move earlier this week, but Millwall are now poised to win the race to sign the defender on loan as part of the next chapter of his football education.

Earlier this week, United youngster Liam McCarron completed a switch to Championship side Stoke City.

The 21-year-old made the move to the Bet 365 Stadium in a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

McCarron joined Leeds from Carlisle United back in July 2019 and departed the club, having made one senior appearance, from the bench in the 4-1 home defeat to Arsenal last December.
