Leeds: Whites reportedly nearing Mohamed Camara deal

Leeds: Whites reportedly nearing Mohamed Camara deal -Leeds United News

Leeds United will pip Brighton to a deal for midfielder Mohamed Camara, according to Red Bull Salzburg insider Don Mitchell.

The Lowdown: Camara teasing Leeds move

Camara has been on the radar at Leeds following the news that Kalvin Phillips will make the move to Manchester City.

The 22-year-old, who journalist James Marshment has heard being billed ‘the next Kante’, has even been teasing Whites supporters over a potential move on social media.

Leeds reportedly agreed personal terms with Camara in recent days, and it looks as if they have shaken hands with Salzburg on a deal for the midfielder after already signing Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen from the Austrian giants this summer.

The Latest: Insider shares update

Salzburg insider Mitchell took to Twitter on Friday evening to share an update on Camara.

He stated that ‘Camara is going to be a Leeds player’, with both clubs reaching ‘full agreement’ on a deal which could be worth £30m with add-ons. Mitchell added that a medical at Thorp Arch is ‘supposedly’ set for Monday or Tuesday.

The Verdict: Big news for Leeds

It looks as if Victor Orta may have got his Phillips replacement in Camara in another big-money move, and who knows, a transfer could even be finalised in time for the player to head to Australia with Jesse Marsch’s squad next week.

The Mali international has previous experience of playing under Marsch, with the Leeds manager mainly using Camara as a central midfielder instead of a holding midfielder at Salzburg.

Elland Road Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

You’d expect that he’ll need to be more defensive-minded at Elland Road with Phillips leaving, though, and he could potentially strike up a partnership with summer signing Marc Roca in a 4-2-2-2 system.
