Leeds United are poised to let young striker Adrian Balboa leave the club to go back to his homeland in Spain, according to Diari de Terrassa.

The Spanish newspaper are claiming that the Catalan outfit are close to agreeing terms with the Yorkshire giants and that a deal could be finalised in the next few days.

Balboa was part of a big overseas recruitment drive by Leeds last season where they drafted in a host of young talent from Spain to bolster the reserve side with a view to eventually promoting the best of them to the first-team.

The centre-forward was signed from U.D Unification Bellvitge but was only deemed good enough for the under-23s and never really impressed so it appears that new coach Marcelo Bielsa has decided that his future lies elsewhere.

Balboa is a native of Barcelona so whilst things have not worked out at Elland Road he will be happy that he is going back home with a chance of regular first-team minutes for Terrasa who are currently in the third tier of Spanish football.

Ironically it hasn’t helped the Leeds youngster that his club have got off to such a sensational start this season winning their first three games and playing a brand of football that has surprised and captivated the second tier of the English game.

Leeds sit in second place in the Championship just a point behind Middlesbrough having played a game less but hold the only 100% record in the division as they look to get back to the Premier League having been absent from the top-flight for the last 14 years.

So far the Whites have beaten Stoke City, Derby County and Rotherham United in their opening three league games scoring nine goals and only conceding two.

Up next for Leeds is a tricky visit to Swansea City on Tuesday night as they look to make it four wins out of four.
