The 18-year-old has a year left on his contract at the London Stadium, and he’s looking to guarantee consistent first-team football

Leeds have made contact with West Ham in a bid to sign teenage midfielder Domingos Quina, according to reports.

Quina, the Portugal youth international, has played for the Hammers since 2016, when he joined after three years in Chelsea’s academy system.

He quickly made two appearances in the Europa League, but after two full campaigns at the London Stadium he has featured in just six matches.

Despite impressing for the Hammers’ Under-23 side, and for Portugal at every youth levels from Under-17 up to Under-20, Quina has not been afforded the first-team opportunities he wishes, and the teenager wants to guarantee consistent football to further his development.


And, according to the Mirror , Leeds are hoping to take advantage of this situation by moving to sign Quina this summer.

It is reported that the Whites, who recently appointed Marcelo Bielsa as their new manager , have ‘made contact’ with West Ham over a deal for the 18-year-old, who has entered the final year of his contract at the London Stadium.

Newcastle are also named as having expressed an interest in Quina, though West Ham are unlikely to be willing to lose a player rated as one of the best prospects in Portuguese football.
