Hay provides major update about Leeds’ transfer activity for target

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be excited with the club’s summer transfer plans and will be expecting Marcelo Bielsa to make a couple of additions to help strengthen the side.

The new manager will want to ensure his team is as strong as possible as they look to try and get promoted to the Premier League and feels he will need a handful of players to arrive at Elland Road.

One man that has been linked with a move to the Whites is Matej Vydra, with the chances of a move seemingly being boosted, as Derby County decided to leave him at home ahead of their training camp in Tenerife.

However, Phil Hay revealed on Twitter that there is still plenty for Leeds and Derby to work out, as nothing has been agreed between the two sides.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has stated that they will need to get over the hurdle of agreeing to a fee first, with one in the range of £12million being touted for the Czech Republic international.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern will want to see the club move swiftly on making an offer for Vydra as it appears he has been given the go-ahead to leave the Rams this summer. The Czech is a prolific goalscorer in the Championship, leading the charts last season and the locals are desperate for the Whites to bring someone to Elland Road that can add the firepower needed to compete for a place in the Premier League.
