Owner involvement reportedly sees Leeds United close to agreement

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want the club to make a number of changes this summer as they look to compete for a place in the Premier League.

The Whites finished last season disappointingly in the bottom half of the Championship table and recently saw Paul Heckingbootom dismissed after just 115 days in the job. The majority of talk surrounding the club recently has been about who will replace the former manager, however, reports have also started to circulate that a new player could be set to arrive.

According to media reports in Bulgaria, Sportal.bg are claiming a deal has been personally agreed between Levski Sofia’s owner Spas Rusev and the Elland Road outfit for teenage goalkeeper Dimitar Sheytanov.

The goalkeeper’s contract runs out at the end of the year and the Bulgarian outfit are prepared to cash in on him, with the player yet to play any senior football.

Landlord’s Verdict

The move for Sheytanov could be considered one of Leeds’ biggest risks to date when looking at recruits from the foreign markets.

Believed to head straight into the Under-23 set-up, it is not a move that goes against what Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani have done before, as they look to build their youth talent for the future. However, the locals in the Tavern will be more concerned with who will be their senior goalkeeper next year, as it remains a position that needs looking at.
