Leeds United: Brenden Aaronson expected to complete summer move

Leeds United: Brenden Aaronson expected to complete summer move -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United will complete a move for RB Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson, but he will arrive this summer instead of in January, according to a recent report.

The Lowdown: Constant Aaronson links

The Whites have been linked with numerous players throughout the January transfer window but none more so than USA international Aaronson.

Leeds are reportedly considering a third bid for the 21-year-old after one was rejected and one was left up in the air.

The attacking midfielder has shone for RB Salzburg, scoring 10 goals and registering 12 assists in 51 appearances for the Austrian side.

A fresh update has now emerged on the matter, with time running out in this window.

The Latest: Summer move on the cards?

According to TEAMtalk, Victor Orta ‘gets his man’ and Aaronson will end up being a Leeds player, but a move is likely to be completed this summer instead of in January.

Salzburg are reluctant to let the American leave this month, especially with a crucial Champions League last-16 clash with Bayern Munich on the horizon.

Aaronson is keen on the move to Leeds happening, however, and is willing to wait until the summer.

The Verdict: January signing still needed

Signing Aaronson would be an undoubted plus for the Whites, given his age and the fact that he has already proved himself in the Champions League, starting all six of Salzburg group stage games this season.

That being said, the need for a central midfielder to come in in January remains great, in order to make up for the current absence of Kalvin Phillips.

While money may be tight at Elland Road currently, failure to sign anyone, even if it’s just for a short-term period, could feel negligent come May – Marcelo Bielsa is currently without a single out-and-out attacking midfielder in his squad.
