Leeds assault, Bonne shines in the National League with Leyton Orient.
Leeds United could get another version of Elland Road's icon, Jermaine Beckford, if they win the reported race to play on the Leyton Orient attacker, Macauley Bonne.
Leeds signed Beckford's young way back in summer 2006 by Wealdstone FC, a team that played the Isthmian Premier League. The assault worked part-time as a windscreen fit for RAC.
Beckford, who is now 34 years old and played for League Two, Bury, scored 84 goals in 147 league appearances and a cup to Leeds – with Chelsea's youth player master Leeds returning to the Championship at the end 2009-10 season.
Leeds left to join Everton that summer, where he scored 10 goals in 40 games, including a unanimous effort against his old Chelsea youth side. His story is certainly one under the equipment category for wealth.
Now, Leeds could add a new version of Beckford's side at Bonne, with TeamTalk claiming Marcelo Bielsa's side competing with Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Norwich City for the National League league show.
The 23-year-old has been on fire for East this season, as Justin Edinburgh looks to lead her side to return to League Two in the second attempt. Bonne scored 15 goals in 21 games, including one against Wrexham on Saturday.
However, the future of the red-hot attacker remains uncertain, with an agreement to end at the end of the season. He may imagine the East to sell in January, rather than avoiding it losing for free in summer.
If Leeds can win the race for Bonne, then they may be about to sign a player who can reflect Beckford's impact and go on to become a cultural hero at Elland Road – just like Beckford.
