According to the report, Leeds United are also set to give the Motherwell starlet a tour of the Yorkshire club as both sides look to underline their interest in the 16-year-old.

The report reveals that Motherwell have granted Campbell permission to pursue a move to the Premier League after the SPL side accepted all bids from the English clubs.
