Leeds United have now sounded out a move for Celta Vigo left-back Javi Galan.
The Lowdown: Orta and Marsch talks

Galan, nicknamed as ‘Rooney’ for his stature, was on the club’s radar last year, and it seems as if Leeds are still keen on the full-back who has registered an impressive 18 assists during his career so far.
The Latest: Galan update
They claimed that the Whites have sounded out the 27-year-old over a move to Elland Road, however, Celta Vigo consider him as ‘untransferable’ after impressing since joining from Huesca.
How many signings do Leeds need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Ship sailed?
It looks as if Leeds may have to pay over the odds for Galan this time around after his fine start to life with Celta Vigo, so it could be worth looking elsewhere for full-back reinforcements.
Galan can play as a left-midfielder and left-winger as well as his primary left-back position, so it’s easy to see why Orta and co are keen to get him flying down the flank at Elland Road.
However, with Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla also interested, it seems as if the ship may have sailed when it comes to Galan moving to Yorkshire.
