Speaking about the young forward and what he has to offer Jesse Marsch’s side, Hatchard, while reporting for Sky Sports, said: “At Hoffenheim, he’s had some games where he’s been unplayable. Defenders think they’ve got him caged by the touchline and he’ll weave through them and make something happen.
“He’s still raw, he’s not the finished article, but I think he would be a great fit for Leeds.”
