Leeds: Phil Hay provides Marc Roca transfer update

Leeds: Phil Hay provides Marc Roca transfer update -Leeds United News

Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has revealed that the club are hoping to complete a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca by the end of the week.

The Lowdown: Rumours in Europe

Hay was the first journalist to break the rumours regarding a move for Roca last week. Since then, a number of European reporters have shared what they know about a potential transfer, with Fabrizio Romano and Florian Plettenberg believing that a move is all but sealed.

Hay has kept fairly quiet on Roca over the last seven days, but he’s now dropped a significant update following deals for Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen.

The Latest: ‘Very close’

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Hay shared a link to a story regarding Manchester City’s interest in Kalvin Phillips.

He then added this post, as can be seen below, where he stated that Leeds are hoping to complete a move by the end of the week and that, should Phillips depart Elland Road, another midfielder would be brought in.

The Verdict: Positive

Roca will initially arrive to provide competition to Phillips, but it looks as if City aren’t going away when it comes to the 26-year-old, so it could be a case of one in and one out over the coming weeks. However, it is positive to know that the Whites will pursue another holding midfielder, should Phillips leave.

A left-footed holding or box-to-box midfielder, the Spaniard will become Jesse Marsch’s fifth option in the middle alongside Phillips, Adam Forshaw, Jamie Shackleton and Mateusz Klich, and will bring experience of playing in La Liga, the Bundesliga and European competitions to Elland Road.

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

From what we know about him, a transfer could prove to be a smart one; but with Roca making just 15 league appearances across the last two seasons, he may need some time to get up to speed in Yorkshire.
