Leeds: Noel Whelan believes Ivan Toney move is unlikely

Leeds: Noel Whelan believes Ivan Toney move is unlikely - Leeds United

Former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan has played down the prospect of Ivan Toney moving to Elland Road this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa may be looking to add to his squad at the end of the season, in order for Leeds to cement their place as Premier League regulars.

They currently sit 11th in the table after an eye-catching first season back in the big time, with the focus now on maintaining their current standards.

Whelan unsure over Toney move

One of the players linked with a move to Leeds in recent days is Brentford star Ivan Toney, with TEAMtalk claiming they are among the clubs interested in signing him this summer.

The striker has been in remarkable form with 34 goal contributions in the Championship this season, scoring 25 times and registering nine assists.

Should Leeds sign Harrison permanently?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, via insidefutbol, Whelan cast doubts over a move materialising, however, with Brentford surely keeping hold of him if they achieve promotion to the Premier League:

“If Brentford get to the Premier League there is no way they are selling him. They will not be that team again. The reason they sell a lot of players is, once you do not get into the Premier League, they have got to offload. If they get to the Premier League, there is no way they will be letting him go.”

Transfer Tavern take

It is certainly difficult to see Brentford allowing Toney to move on next season, should they be in the Premier League for the first time in their history.

The 24-year-old has been their star man this term and losing him to a direct rival like Leeds would both weaken them and make Bielsa’s attack even more potent.
