Leeds United: Samuel Iling Junior rejects Whites’ interest

Leeds United: Samuel Iling Junior rejects Whites’ interest -Leeds United News

Juventus forward Samuel Iling Junior has rejected interest from Leeds United in favour of extending his stay in Turin, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Iling Junior profiled

Sponsored by Puma, the 19-year-old is primarily a left-winger and moved to Italy from Chelsea in 2020.

The teenager has gone on to contribute to 29 goals in 58 for Juventus’ youth side but is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

That appears to have led to interest from Elland Road, with an update in which Whites were named emerging in the last 48 hours.

The Latest: New Juventus contract

Football Insider revealed on Saturday morning that Leeds and their Premier League rivals Aston Villa had both made enquiries for Iling Junior.

However, their report adds that he has rejected interest over a possible return to England and has instead agreed a new long-term contract with Juventus.

The Verdict: Senior addition needed

Phil Hay believes that Leeds are on the lookout for a new forward in the New Year, along with a young left-back.

It will be an important deal for Victor Orta to execute, with Patrick Bamford struggling for fitness and form over the last 18 months.

True or False? Jesse Marsch played for the USA at the World Cup!

Therefore, Leeds need a proven goalscorer to bolster Jesse Marsch’s squad over the coming weeks, and not necessarily someone like Iling Junior who has only played three times at first-team level, although the Whites’ interest could always be revisited further down the line.
