Leeds United – possible signings

Loic Bade

Leeds are monitoring Lens defender Loic Bade, according to FootMercato.

The 20-year-old centre-back is in demand and reportedly on the radar of Lyon, Borussia Monchengladbach and AC Milan.

Bade has played 16 times this season and has helped Lens keep clean sheets against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Saint-Etienne and Rennes.

It appears unlikely the defender will leave this month but a move may be on the cards during the summer window.

Louie Sibley

Leeds have been given a boost in their pursuit of Derby County striker Louie Sibley, according to The Sun.

 

The Rams are struggling financially amid a drawn-out takeover process and have put £15 million-rated striker Sibley up for sale.

That valuation could drop considerably as Derby look to stave off administration. The Rams’ loss could be Leeds’ gain as the club was previously put off by Sibley’s valuation.

Yasser Larouci

The Express reports Leeds could sign Liverpool defender Yasser Larouci after the left-back rejected a new contract at the club.

The Algeria-born 20-year-old is out of contract in the summer so could leave for free in June.

The Reds may sell the defender now to put some money in their transfer pot.

Sean McGurk

Leeds have had a bid for Wigan Athletic midfielder Sean McGurk turned down, according to The Sun.

The 17-year-old’s contract ends this summer but Wigan may look to sell the emerging talent as the Lancashire club is another one with financial struggles.

In spite of their situation, Leeds’ offer was deemed unacceptable and Rangers are reportedly keen to take advantage.

Leeds United – potential departure

Jay Roy-Grot

Dutch side ADO Den Haag want to sign out of favour Leeds forward Jay Roy-Grot, according to AD.

The Netherlands international has yet to feature for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this campaign and was sent out on loan to Vitesse Arnhem last season. His last appearance for the Whites came in April 2018.

AD reports Den Haag will only sanction a bid if Leeds terminate the final six months of Roy-Grot’s contract.
