Leeds striker linked Bonne shines in the National League with Leyton Orient.
Leeds United may have a different version of the icon Elland Road Beckford, if they win the race on the alleged ground Leyton Orient striker Macaulay Bonne.
Leeds signed young Beckford way back in the summer of 2006 with Wealdstone F.c., teams that have played in the Isthmian premiership & # 39; er League. Forward worked part-time as a windscreen fitter for the RAC.
Beckford, is now 34 and playing in League Two sides Take, went on to score 84 goals in 147 league and cup appearances for Leeds – with a youth player Chelsea planned return of Leeds in the championship at the end of the 2009-10 season.
He left Leeds to join Everton in the summer, when he scored 10 goals in 40 games, including an incredible solo against his former side Chelsea youth. His story is certainly one of rags to riches by category.
Now, Leeds can add a new version of Beckford on its side in Bonne, with TeamTalk claimed Marcelo Bielsa side with & # 39 are competing with Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Norwich City to bump the National League.
23-year-old has been on fire in the East this season, as well as Justin Edinburgh looks for his part management to return to League Two at the second attempt. Bonne scored 15 goals in 21 games, including one against Wrexham on Saturday.
The future of a hot hitter is questionable, though, since his contract expires at the end of the season. This may push the Orient selling it in January, not to avoid losses on its free summer.
If Leeds can win the race for Bonne, they may be about to sign a player that can display the effect of Beckford and go on to become a cult hero at Elland Road – as well as Beckford.
