Hay provides encouraging but cautious news about Leeds transfer target

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want to see a number of transfers happen this summer following the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa as manager.

The Chilean was appointed last week as the new man in charge of the Elland Road outfit and the locals will be hoping his name and experience can help take the Whites back into the Premier League.

The Yorkshire outfit know that they will need a number of additions this summer in order to have any chance of making that a possibility and have been heavily linked with a number of attackers as they look to add to their firepower.

Matej Vydra is one of the names that has been mentioned over the past couple of weeks and a number of the locals have been wondering whether anything could happen for the Derby County man.

According to Phil Hay, who is the chief football writer for the Yorkshire Evening Post, there has been some progress, however, it does appear there could still be some way to go.

It is believed the wage demands will not be a problem for the Czech Republic international but rather the transfer fee, with Derby asking for around £11million to let the deal happen.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be encouraged that there has been progress about a deal with the prolific goalscorer as they look to add an attacking threat to their game.

Vydra was crowned the league’s top goalscorer with 21 strikes to his name and the locals will want to see him doing his thing at Elland Road in the very near future.
