Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be excited with the news that is starting to emerge from the club about a possible signing being touted.
The locals in the bar will have been concerned that their managerial hunt could harm their prospects of bringing in any key targets this summer, as Paul Heckingbottom was dismissed from his job.
However, according to a report in The Yorkshire Evening Post, Abel Hernandez remains locked in advanced talks with the club about a switch from Hull City. The Uruguay international’s contract expires at the end of the month, and Leeds have been keen on making him theirs for the past month.
It is believed the striker is set to have a release clause inserted into his contract, should the Elland Road outfit not make Premier League football in the near future, although the club will need to stump up significant funds to help bring him to the club.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Leeds fans in the Tavern are due some good news following some consistently frustrating news, mainly regarding their hunt for a new manager.
The fact that they could be edging towards a deal for Hernandez, despite the lack of a manager, will help the locals feel that the club are continuing with their recruitment plans and will hope to see some more additions in the near future.
Leeds fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
