Leeds: Journalist drops fresh transfer update

Leeds: Journalist drops fresh transfer update -Leeds United

Journalist Ryan Taylor believes Leeds United are working ‘behind the scenes’ on ‘other’ deals alongside RB Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson, Give Me Sport report.

The Lowdown: Third Aaronson bid?

The Whites have made Aaronson their top midfield target and have already submitted two bids. The first was £15m and was rejected, whereas the second was worth £20m and is also yet to be accepted.

Do you think Leeds will sign a midfielder this month?

Yes, 100%

Graham Smyth of The Yorkshire Evening Post believes the Whites are now considering a third offer for the USA international, who was coy when quizzed on a move to Yorkshire.

However, even though Phil Hay stated that a quiet end to the window was expected if Leeds couldn’t land Aaronson, Taylor believes Victor Orta is hard at work.

The Latest: Taylor’s comments

Journalist Taylor was talking to Give Me Sport in a story shared on Wednesday morning.

He believes that there is ‘other stuff going on’ alongside Aaronson ‘behind the scenes’.

“We haven’t really heard much on specific names, but from some of the people I’ve spoken to, it seems like there is other stuff going on (than the Aaronson pursuit) behind the scenes.”

The Verdict: Who could it be?

Midfield is where Orta is keen to add to, with reports ahead of January suggesting he was after both a defensive and attacking midfielder.

Aaronson appears to be the attacking target, so perhaps Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara is a defensive one. Leeds have reportedly spoken with the Frenchman’s agent, with the Marseille man seemingly up for sale for £10m due to his contract situation.

He could be a shrewd midfield addition who can also provide cover at centre-back, and hopefully, Leeds can bring in at least one player before Monday’s deadline.
