Aidy White, who has stated that Archie Grey is consistently excellent when he watches him, has compared the young player to another member of the Leeds United team.


White was speaking following Saturday’s 4-0 victory over Ipswich Town by Daniel Farke’s team, which sent a strong message to the top two teams in the Championship.


Ipswich has scored more goals this season than any other team in the division. Thus, some would have questioned if Archie Grey would have trouble playing right back.


Archie Grey shines once more in Leeds’ victory.


But the seventeen-year-old was outstanding. Leif Davis’s return to Elland Road was a sad experience. Leeds also made history this season by becoming just the second side to blank the Tractor Boys.

Furthermore, White implied in an interview with BBC Radio Leeds that Grey never ceases to impress him.


“He’s consistently good. He always amazes me with his brilliance. I constantly give him praise,” he remarked.


It is impressive that a young player with such maturity and poise can be so calm, collected, and easygoing.


“When he came through, he reminded me of Sam Byram, another player in the Leeds United squad.” When it comes to maintaining cool when playing the ball, not hurrying, and not letting outside noise get to him, he is that kind of wise beyond his years. And rightfully so, he has received a tonne of accolades.


Teenager on a path to success, one way or another


Grey is not a right-back, and we must constantly remind ourselves of this. The adolescent was still waiting for his club debut in the first team going into this season. He appears to be at ease playing out of position at the Championship level, though, these days.


It comes as no surprise that teams like Borussia Dortmund are showing interest in Grey. And if he continues on his current path, that attention will only grow.


The good news is that, as White implies, Grey does seem to be very wise. It is difficult to envision him hurrying to finalise a transfer in order to reach the top level as soon as possible.


Naturally, Leeds must continue to advance if we want to have a realistic shot of holding onto him for more than the upcoming few years.


However, if he does depart at some point, perhaps it will be a decision that offers Leeds the opportunity to advance and lets Grey reach his greatest potential.
