Leeds give up on Callum O’Dowda

Leeds give up on Callum O’Dowda

Leeds United appear to be in the market for a winger this January as they look to bolster their aims of returning to the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa is believed to be keen to add a wide man to his squad as they look to add more attacking and creative threat in the final third of the pitch.

Bristol City’s Callum O’Dowda had been linked with a move, however, one report suggests Leeds have given up on signing him.


The Times state that The Robins had managed to ward off the interest from the Championship leaders after they triggered an extension in the 23-year-old’s contract to keep him until 2020.

The winger has been impressive for the Ashton Gate outfit and is thought to still have interest from clubs in the Premier League.

The Verdict:

O’Dowda to Leeds looks extremely unlikely and it does not really come as a surprise to hear that the club are set to give up on him.

With the news that the club have extended his contract by triggering the clause, Bristol City have the ball in their court and would not be under any pressure to sell him.

The Whites have been trying to get Swansea City’s Daniel James for some time as well and will surely turn their sole focus on trying to get a deal for the Wales international over the line.
