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.
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.
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.
