The Lowdown: Garner excels at Forest
The Latest: Leeds enquiry for Garner
Hay shared a story for The Athletic on Tuesday morning regarding Leeds’ transfer plans following a move for Brenden Aaronson.
The reliable reporter revealed that the club have their eyes on midfield targets and name-checked Garner as a possible signing, claiming that the Whites – and by association their director of football Victor Orta – made enquiries to Manchester United during the second half of the season.
The Verdict: O’Brien a more realistic signing?
New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag plans to watch Garner in action before making a call on the 21-year-old’s future.
Should Ten Hag green-light an exit for the midfielder, Leeds may well try their luck judging by Hay’s recent claim, although you’d expect that he may be more open to a permanent move to Forest following his impressive loan spell with the newly-promoted side.
How many signings do Leeds need to make this summer?
Therefore, looking to sign Lewis O’Brien from Huddersfield instead could be a wiser and more realistic move, with reports at the weekend hinting that Leeds could trigger his £10m release clause.
