Talks positive with young Northern Ireland striker
Glenavon manager Gary Hamilton says Leeds United are still in talks with young striker Robbie McDaid about a move to Elland Road.
Hamilton says the club and player are in talks with Leeds at the moment about a deal to bring McDaid to Elland Road and he is confident of a positive outcome.
Speaking in the Lurgan Mail , Hamilton said, "They`re in talks at the minute so we`ll have to wait and see if everyone agrees. The two clubs have to agree before anything can happen. Robbie has to agree with the club involved as well.
"We don`t see any problems from our side. What we have requested has to be agreed and Robbie has to agree his terms. There are still a couple of things that have to happen.
"For Robbie`s sake, we hope they do but recently I had a player sign on a piece of paper and the deal still didn`t go through.
"That`s why you don`t talk too much about these things because it`s the player we are protecting until it all happens.
"Yes, the progress is very positive and hopefully it will be done soon, but Leeds are in the middle of a takeover and you never know what way things go."
The Northern Ireland under-18 international has been training with Leeds this week and he scored twice in the under-17s 4-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.
The 17-year-old was also on target twice for Glenavon last weekend as they beat near neighbours Portadown and his form has earned him a call-up this week for the Northern Ireland under-19 side for their friendly with Switzerland in March.
He has made 12 appearances for Glenavon since making his first team debut last season and he has netted three times.
