Leeds United target Yasin Ben El-Mhanni in talks with other club

Leeds United are currently the frontrunners in the Championship having enjoyed a lot of success under Marcelo Bielsa so far this season. 

Indeed, the Whites finally seem to be heading back to where they belong, which is back in the Premier League, with an important few matches coming up after the international break. However, the Championship club look set to miss out on a reported target, as according to The Sun, Yasin Ben El-Mhanni is keen on a move to Europe and has opened talks with Royal Antwerp.

It was reported at the end of August that Leeds were one of the teams that remained keen on signing Yasin Ben El-Mhanni following his departure from Newcastle this summer.

Although, Standard Liege have entered the race to sign ex-Newcastle youngster Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, with Royal Antwerp already in talks with the winger.

And, to make matters worse for Leeds United, the 22-year-old is thought to be keen on a move to Europe.

THE VERDICT:

The former Newcastle United winger was one of the most promising prospects in English football at one point, but a number of issues at St James’ Park caused problems for the youngster.

However, it now looks as if he’s about to move to a European club, with Standard Liege interested and Royal Antwerp already in talks with the winger.

Leeds United won’t be too bothered after the start they’ve made to the current campaign, with automatic promotion well within their reach.
