Leeds United: Whites eyeing defender Patrick van Aanholt in potential ‘real coup’

Leeds United: Whites eyeing defender Patrick van Aanholt in potential ‘real coup’ - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

According to a report by The Mirror, Leeds United are eyeing Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt and consider his capture on a potential free transfer as a ‘real coup‘, with the Dutchman out of contract at Selhurst Park when this season concludes.

Van Aanholt – a hugely experienced Premier League figure having made 209 appearances in total, scoring 21 goals and assisting 15 others (Transfermarkt) – could leave Palace for nothing as there has been no development on a new deal for the 30-year-old.

Leeds eyeing potential ‘real coup’

This has prompted Leeds and, by extension, Victor Orta to take note of the situation, with a new left-back high on the priority list for Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road.

The defender has now emerged as a summer transfer target given his soon-to-be status as a free agent, and the Whites view his possible capture for no transfer fee as a ‘real coup’.

Transfer Tavern take

Bielsa is said to be keen on a swoop for Van Aanholt, coming after the Argentine previously hailed how ‘dangerous’ he was against his side during Leeds’ 4-1 mauling at the hands of Palace back in November (Leeds Live).

Indeed, he apparently fits the profile of an attacking full-back Bielsa wishes to bring in, but it remains to be seen whether Leeds manage to secure him this summer.
