Leeds United and Huddersfield Town are ‘not a million miles apart in their valuation’ of Lewis O’Brien, according to journalist Graham Smyth.
The Lowdown: Leeds keen on O’Brien move
Marcelo Bielsa may still be looking to do some transfer business this summer, despite the new Premier League season getting underway this weekend.
The Latest: Smyth provides update
An update has now been provided by Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Smyth, who claims that Leeds remain interested in the 22-year-old.
While it is stated that ‘nothing is imminent’ currently, it is thought that positive talks are taking place between the two clubs over a move.
The Verdict: Exciting long-term prospect
While O’Brien may not necessarily come straight in as a regular starter for Leeds, he could be considered both a reliable squad player and a long-term prospect, having been lauded as a ‘superb player’ by Noel Whelan.
O’Brien could afford the Leeds star more of a breather throughout the campaign and be a strong option in domestic cup competitions, if of course the Whites can go on to seal the deal.
