Leeds: Sky Sports drop Jean-Kevin Augustin update

Leeds: Sky Sports drop Jean-Kevin Augustin update -Leeds United News

Sky Sports Germany have suggested it is likely that Leeds United will have to pay RB Leipzig the full transfer fee plus interest for Jean-Kevin Augustin.

The Lowdown: Hearing completed

Leeds’ appeal on FIFA’s Augustin ruling was heard in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland on Tuesday. Adam Pope posted on Twitter that a hearing was complete and a verdict is awaited, which could take anything up to two months.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

Leipzig are thought to be ‘very confident’ following the four-hour hearing, and Sky Sports Germany have now provided an update.

The Latest: Sky Sports update

As per Sky Germany, it is likely that Leipzig will probably receive the transfer fee agreed at the time in three instalments of €7m.

They add that the Whites may also have to include a 5% interest on top of each payment, taking a total to €22.05m.

The Verdict: Bad to worse

Augustin only played 48 minutes of action for Leeds and is now with Nantes, so it’s safe to say that he can go down as an awful signing by Victor Orta.

It now looks as if Andrea Radrizzani is going to need to pay more than the €21m obligation to buy agreement back in 2020, with 5% interest on three separate payments, with the saga surrounding what can only be described as a flop going from bad to worse.

Leeds, should they fail in their appeal, may still go down the route of a further appeal, although Phil Hay labelled that as ‘very rare’, so CAS’ verdict could prove final.
