The Lowdown: Dieng profiled
The Whites have reportedly scouted Dieng recently, and it looks as if a late summer move could be on the cards.
The Latest: Bairner’s claim
Talking to MOT Leeds News, Bairner was asked if Dieng would fancy a move to Yorkshire, to which the journalist said:
“Yeah. It could be a nice move for him.
“Looks like he won’t get much of an opportunity to play at OM this season, which is a shame because he needs someone to show a bit of confidence in him.”
The Verdict: Alongside Gnonto?
However, the Whites are also in need of a senior forward before the September 1 deadline due to Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt’s recent injury issues, and Dieng could well be that man.
Happy with Orta's business so far?
I'm not so sure!
A number of Premier League clubs have shown an interest in the Marseille player, so Leeds could be landing a coup if they manage to get a deal over the line.
Dieng would be able to provide competition to Bamford and Gelhardt, while also giving Marsch another option out wide, and you’d like to think that the 22-year-old’s soaring Transfermarkt valuation will only increase with time.
