Leeds: Whites working on another USA-based player

Leeds: Whites working on another USA-based player -Leeds United News

Leeds United are looking at another American-based player along with New York City FC striker Valentin Castellanos, according to 90min.

The Lowdown: Castellanos links

The Whites are thought to be ‘most interested’ in Castellanos after Manchester City passed up on their option to sign the 23-year-old.

Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear were recently spotted alongside Leeds director Massimo Marinelli just over five miles from New York City’s Yankee Stadium.

It seems as if Castellanos could be the third signing of the summer with Brenden Aaronson signed and a move for Rasmus Kristensen at an advanced stage, but Leeds aren’t stopping there.

The Latest: Another…

90min shared a story on Friday looking at Leeds’ interest in Castellanos. They added that as well as the Argentinian, Leeds have unnamed representatives looking at another American based player.

The report doesn’t reveal who that player is, although the Whites were linked with Philadelphia Union left-back Kai Wagner in the final weeks of the season.

The Verdict: Double deal?

Kristensen looks set to become the second player to swap RB Salzburg for Leeds, and it appears as if the Whites have their eye on another double raid over in the US.

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

Castellanos would bolster Jesse Marsch’s attacking ranks, something which is needed after Patrick Bamford’s injury struggles last season.

Another USA-based player could also be on their way to Yorkshire by the looks of it, and if it is Wagner, he’d provide competition to Junior Firpo at left-back with Stuart Dallas sidelined.
