Phil Hay provides update on Florian Jozefzoon

Marcelo Bielsa will want to see a number of players arrive at Leeds United this summer as he continues his reshaping of the squad ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign.

The Whites boss watched his side win their pre-season opener against Forest Green Rovers as he got an idea of whether the players were understanding of what he wanted them to implement into their game moving forward.

During the match, there were significant transfer developments concerning a player the Elland Road outfit have been linked with in the past.

Brentford had stated via their club Twitter account that they had accepted an offer from an unnamed club for their winger Florian Jozefzoon, however, Phil Hay later revealed that he did not believe it to be Leeds.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist had stated that he did not feel that the Whites had made an offer for the player, although he said that there was a chance the club could get involved as they do like him.

The Verdict:

If the bid is not from Leeds, then they could be about to miss out on another one of their summer transfer targets, which will likely frustrate Bielsa.

The club have so far landed Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman from Chelsea on season-long loans, however, they have failed to get any of their permanent deals across the line.

The likes of Matej Vydra and Abel Hernandez have failed to agree to terms with the club regarding wage demands, whilst Birmingham City wanted a permanent deal for David Stockdale.

Jozefzoon is considered by many as one of the best attacking options in the division and should Leeds not make an offer for him, they could regret their opportunity of bringing the 27-year-old to Elland Road.
