Leeds United’s summer of turmoil appears as though it could be about to continue as Marcelo Bielsa is thought to have missed out on another one of his targets.
The Argentine has had a frustrating start to life as the Elland Road chief when it comes to getting players through the door during the transfer window.
The new manager is keen to add strength to his side this summer as they look to challenge for a place in next season’s Premier League, however, things certainly have not been going his way.
Bielsa has already seen deals for the likes of Abel Hernandez, Matej Vydra and David Stockdale not go as planned, and according to Phil Hay, it looks as though another one will go against the Whites this summer.
It will be Derby for Florian Jozefzoon. Expected to take up a four-year contract there. #lufc

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has revealed on Twitter that Brentford’s Florian Jozefzoon is expected to head to Derby County, despite Leeds making an offer to match them.
It is understood that the Dutchman has undergone a medical with the Pride Park outfit and barring any late problems, he is expected to sign a four-year contract with the Rams.
Bielsa’s recruitment drive this summer has not been able to get really started so far, despite the acquisitions of Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker from Chelsea on season-long loan deals.
The Whites will be getting frustrated that they continue to miss out on their top targets for one reason or another and there will be real concern that the club will not bring the right players to Elland Road before the transfer window closes.
Leeds definitely need to add to their squad this summer if they are to have any chance of competing for a promotion spot, however, at the moment, a mid-table finish would be considered realistic once again.
