Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has hailed Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah as ‘a complete player’.
The 20-year-old striker has scored four goals in six appearances since joining Leeds on loan last month.
And his latest strike came in the Whites’ 2-0 win at Yorkshire rivals Barnsley on Sunday.
While comparing Nketiah to Patrick Bamford, who appeared unhappy after being replaced in the 70th minute, Bielsa said: “Eddie has different characteristics, and in a match like that he is a good option.
“Some players are involved (in play) a lot before creating chances. Nketiah is more involved at the end of the action but he has good characteristics to combine with his team-mates to give us these options.
“He is a striker who can score goals. For me, he is a complete player.”
Nketiah is yet to start a Championship game with Bamford leading the line for Leeds.
Bamford has netted four league goals so far this season, but was denied three times by Barnsley goalkeeper Brad Collins.
Bielsa added: “He puts in a lot of effort to be in a good condition to score, and he had a lot of chances in this game.
“I tried to explain to him that he deserved a goal. He is a great centre-forward.”
