Leeds United suffered a setback in the race for promotion earlier on today as they suffered defeat in front of home support against Hull City.
The Whites have impressed throughout the month of December but they’ll now be heading into the New Year off the pack of a negative result.
However, the Yorkshire club did suffer a big setback on the transfer front recently, as according to AlSadd S.C’s official Twitter account, Baghdad Bounedjah has signed a new deal.
Interestingly, Le Buteur previously reported at the start of December that Leeds had decided to return with a larger offer for the Algerian.
But, Bounedjah looks set to remain an Al Sadd player for the foreseeable future, after signing a five-and-a-half year deal on Friday.
The forward has been prolific in the current campaign, scoring 26 goals in 13 appearances, so it comes as a big blow that Leeds appear to have missed out on him.
The forward has been very impressive in the current campaign, so a move to the Championship high-flyers would be just reward for his efforts.
Indeed, the 27-year-old has established himself as a star on the international stage with Algerian and domestically, with goals always guaranteed.
And, with a number of clubs possibly swooping in to secure the services of Kemar Roofe, perhaps this could turn out to be an even bigger blow for the Whites.
