Former Leeds player Noel Whelan had spoken about Origi’s move to Leeds earlier.
Divock Origi’s move to Leeds has been backed by two people now.
“I do like Origi,” Whelan told Football Insider. “He has pace, power, can hold the ball up and can play out wide. He ticks a lot of boxes.
“Sometimes you need to shop carefully.”
His comment has been also backed by Kevin Philips, who says that Origi might want to move to a smaller club like Leeds or Aston Villa in hopes of starting every single game.
“I do not think he would want to leave Liverpool and go to a team that could be scrapping for survival again next season but I could be wrong,” he told Football Insider.
“Divock has been there for a while and he might be fed up with being on the fringes. He has won the Champions League and the Premier League and now he might just want to go and play football.
“When you go to somewhere like Villa or Leeds from Liverpool you expect to be playing virtually every game. That might be in the player’s thoughts.
