Yosuke Ideguchi’s loan deal includes purchase option

Yosuke Ideguchi’s loan deal includes purchase option

One player that left Leeds United this summer may not have the chance to make a return to the club at the end of the season.

According to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Yosuke Ideguchi’s loan deal to Greuther Furth in the Bundesliga II includes a clause allowing the German outfit to turn his move into a permanent deal.

The Japan international midfielder has struggled to make a real impact at Elland Road, although he was immediately sent out to Cultural Leonesa on a temporary deal following his arrival in January.

His time in Spain was one that he would likely want to forget, as he appeared to look a little lost with the way football is played in Europe.

However, it looks as though he could be handed a second chance, this time in Germany and will be looking to make a real impact where fellow Japanese internationals have excelled in the past.

The Verdict:

Things really haven’t got going for Ideguchi at Leeds, although he never really got a chance to impress for Leeds.

The Japanese man was thought to be on the cusp of Marcelo Bielsa’s squad earlier this summer, however, it appeared that he did not do enough to remain at Elland Road for the current campaign.

With the clause of a permanent deal inserted to in the current arrangement, it would suggest that the £900k-rated, as per Transfermarkt, midfielder’s future in Yorkshire is over.
