Leeds have bid turned down for Taras Romanchuk

Leeds United are still looking at making their first permanent signing this summer as Marcelo Bielsa is keen on adding to his squad.

The Argentine manager is desperate to strengthen the team ahead of their upcoming Championship campaign as they look to win promotion to the Premier League.

However, his transfer drive has not gone to plan so far this summer, as he has failed to bring a number of his priority targets to Elland Road, despite landing Chelsea duo Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker on season-long loans.

And, it looks as though the frustrating times are set to continue for Bielsa and Leeds during the window, as reports are suggesting that they have failed to land another one of their targets.

According to The Daily Mail, the Whites have had an offer of £1.2million rejected for Taras Romanchuk from Jagiellonia Bialystok. The 26-year-old is an experienced midfielder, who has been capped by Poland at the international level, however, it remains to be seen if Leeds will improve on their initial offer.

The Verdict:

The move for a player like Romanchuk comes to mind as a little of a surprise move from the Whites.

It is no secret that director of football Victor Orta has looked to the foreign market for players before, however, it has seemed that the club have been looking for Championship experienced professionals this summer.

However, the midfielder has played over 100 times for his current club and has scored a number of goals which has impressed onlookers, considering he predominantly plays in a holding role.
