Leeds in battle to land Stefan Johansen, Floyd Ayite and Neeskens Kebano

Leeds United could be about to have a busy few days as the January transfer window enters its final week.

Marcelo Bielsa saw his side come from behind to beat Rotherham United 2-1 on Saturday as they retained their lead at the top of the Championship table.

However, it is understood the Argentine wants to bring a couple of fresh faces into the team and could be about to raid one of last season’s promoted sides for three of their men.


According to a report by TeamTALK, Fulham’s Stefan Johansen, Floyd Ayite and Neeskens Kebano are all thought to be on The Whites’ radar this winter and have spoken with the Premier League outfit about them.

The trio were instrumental in The Cottagers promotion last season, however, they have since fallen out of favour at Craven Cottage and Claudio Ranieri is believed to have told them they can all leave.

Leeds will, however, face a battle to land any of them, if not all of them, with the likes of Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough and clubs from Italy and France all thought to be interested.

The Verdict:

The report does not appear to suggest whether Leeds are interested in all of them or if they are after a particular individual, however, a move for any of them could be a great piece of business for the club.

The Elland Road outfit are already at the top of the Championship, but if they were to add players who tasted promotion success last season, that could help them to get across the line.

However, with the amount of interest in the trio, Bielsa and The Whites could have a serious battle on their hands this January.
