A four-year-old boy whose Halloween costume delighted football fans around the world has been invited to appear on Soccer AM.

Irish youngster Freddie Callaghan is from a Leeds United-supporting family and his mum Fiona shared photos on Twitter of her son dressed as Marcelo Bielsa for Halloween.

Freddie's parents dyed his hair white and he used his blue Lego tub as the famous 'Bielsa bucket'.

Soccer AM got in touch with the family, from Dublin, after Fiona's post was retweeted over 1,600 times.

They flew in from Ireland on Friday and will appear on the show on Saturday.

Fiona said that excited Freddie was giving the Leeds United salute to fellow travellers at the airport before boarding their flight.

"Thank you to every single person who messaged us and retweeted us. Once again LUFC has helped our Fred make his dreams come true."

Freddie has previously dressed as Kyle Bartley, who is now at West Bromwich Albion following a successful loan spell at Leeds that ended in 2017.
