Pundit Carlton Palmer has been reacting to a transfer update involving Leeds United and Birmingham City midfielder George Hall.
The Lowdown: New offer
The Whites reportedly made an offer for Hall’s services over the summer but look set to return with a new bid in January.
Football Insider shared a story in recent days regarding Hall and Leeds, saying that the club lining up a new offer for the midfielder and added that an agreement could be reached before the January transfer window opens.
The Latest: Palmer’s comments
He said that Leeds have been eyeing the youngster for a long time and hinted at a potential deal which would see Hall return to Birmingham on loan.
“Birmingham are in the financial plight that they’re in and there are a lot of clubs who have been looking at him, but Leeds have been looking at him particularly for a long time.
“And, they may be able to do a deal with Leeds where he comes back on loan and plays because, you know, like I’ve always said, for these players to develop their education is playing football.”
The Verdict: Make sense?
Therefore, it could be wise for Leeds officials to send Hall back to the Midlands on loan for the second half of the season. It could make a transfer easier and some would say it would make sense in regards to Hall continuing his development.
