Leeds United match Derby County bid for Florian Jozefzoon

Leeds United will still want to make a couple of changes to their squad this summer as Marcelo Bielsa continues his plans on rebuilding the squad to challenge for the Premier League.

The Whites current recruitment drive has been a roller-coaster of a ride during the transfer window, with the club failing to get a number of the deals they have tried to make over the line.

Proposed transfers for the likes of Abel Hernandez, Matej Vydra and David Stockdale have all collapsed along the way, whilst they have seen some of their other top targets decide to complete moves with other sides.

However, it appears they are in the race to add a third addition to their squad this summer, following the acquisition of Chelsea duo Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman on season-long loan deals.

According to Peter O’Rourke, Leeds have matched the offer made by Derby County for Florian Jozefzoon.

The reliable sports journalist stated on his Twitter account that it was now a decision for the Brentford winger to make as the club have accepted both bids and he is currently in talks with both parties.

The Verdict:

Jozefzoon is considered one of the best attacking players in the Championship and Bielsa will be keen to add him to his Leeds squad this summer.

The 27-year-old has been tracked by the club for some time, however, it now remains down to the Dutchman to decide where he would like to go, with a choice between the Whites and the Rams.

The Elland Road outfit will be hoping that they do not miss out on another player this summer and will need to do their best to offer the winger what he wants.
