Leeds United transfer target Lewis O’Brien reportedly has a £10million release contract in his new Huddersfield Town contract.
The Lowdown: Leeds still keen on O’Brien
The Whites spent much of the summer transfer window being linked with a move for the midfielder, but he ended up remaining at Huddersfield.
He has since signed a new four-year contract with the Terriers, but a revelation that has now emerged suggests Leeds could still get their man.
The Latest: Release clause revealed
According to Football Insider, a Huddersfield source has confirmed to them that O’Brien has a release clause of £10million, meaning the Whites could get their man if they are willing to pay that amount.
It is claimed that that is less than Leeds actually bid for the 22-year-old in the summer, with an overall offer of £13million supposedly tabled.
The Verdict: Worth the money?
It is debatable as to whether or not O’Brien is worth as much as £10million, but he is an influential player in the Championship and a long-term prospect.
With Kalvin Phillips possibly on the move in the not-too-distant future, O’Brien could be viewed as someone who could help fill the void.
In other news, a journalist has made a big Phillips contract claim. Read more here.
