Leeds: Whites maintaining interest in long-time target Todd Cantwell -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United remain interested in signing long-term transfer target and Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Cantwell linked with Leeds move

The 23-year-old has been an impressive performer at Carrow Road over a number of years, although he has been limited to just five Premier League starts so far this season.

Cantwell has been linked with a move to Leeds and could be available in the January transfer window, with the Canaries seemingly willing to sell him.

The midfielder’s contract expires this summer with the option for it to be extended by a year, but Norwich could jump at the chance to receive a fee now.

The Latest: O’Rourke on Leeds’ Cantwell interest

Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke talked up the idea of the prospective move happening, adding that Cantwell has been a target for Leeds for some time.

He stated: “Todd Cantwell’s an interesting one. Leeds were very keen on him last summer and maybe the window before that as well, he is someone who’s been on their radar for a long time.”

The Verdict: Exciting long-term option

The Whites are badly in need of squad depth, particularly in midfield, with Kalvin Phillips still out injured for a while and Adam Forshaw needing to be monitored carefully after such a long absence.

Cantwell is someone who could add a huge amount of guile in the middle of the park, having been hailed as ‘incredible’ by ex-Norwich striker Dean Ashton in the past. At 23, he is also someone who should only improve in the coming years, while also having the experience of 45 Premier League games behind him.

His tally of 14 goals and 12 assists in 110 appearances for Norwich shows that he could add creativity in Leeds’ midfield, providing the attack with more ammunition moving forward. It’s just what Marcelo Bielsa might need, considering that his side are among the top-flight’s lowest scorers this term.
