Leeds: Whites could still sign Hwang Hee-chan

Leeds: Whites could still sign Hwang Hee-chan -Leeds United News

Leeds United could still sign Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan on deadline day, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Approach made

The Whites are desperate to bring in a new forward before tonight’s deadline after Rodrigo dislocated his shoulder against Everton on Tuesday.

Phil Hay shared news of an approach for Hwang on Wednesday, with Leeds keen to bring the 68-goal forward to Elland Road. Wolves turned down a £17m move, which resulted in the Whites moving on to pursuing Cody Gakpo.

They had Victor Orta in the Netherlands on Wednesday evening, but Gakpo is set to stay with PSV Eindhoven in another blow for Leeds.

The Latest: Sheth’s claim

In a story shared by GiveMeSport on Thursday morning, when Orta was on the way back to Yorkshire alone from Holland, Sheth said that Leeds could still go back in for Hwang.

The Sky Sports reporter stated:

“The Wolves striker could be the one that they go for, in Hwang, simply because Sasa Kalajdzic of Stuttgart has completed his move to Wolves. I just wonder whether Wolves will now do business on Hwang.”

The Verdict: Desperate

It is turning into a disastrous final few days for Leeds in the transfer window, and it appears as if there is a real possibility that the club will fail to bring in a new attacker for Jesse Marsch.

That could prove costly as thee season goes on, especially with Rodrigo sidelined and Patrick Bamford last completing 90 minutes in the Premier League 12 months ago.

Will Leeds sign a forward in the final days of the window?

Yes, Orta will work his magic!

Yes, Orta will work his magic!

No, don't think so!

No, don't think so!

As a result, a lot of pressure could be put on youngster Joe Gelhardt, but there is still time for Leeds to get a dramatic forward addition over the line – potentially Hwang.
