Michael Cuisance has insisted there was “no problem” with his Leeds United medical despite rumours an underlying injury led to the collapse of his transfer, Sky Sports reports.

The Frenchman had all but completed his transfer to Leeds from Bayern Munich. However, the move broke down in the final stages, with The Athletic suggesting the 21-year-old failed his medical.

Cuisance has since joined his native Marseille on loan until the end of the season. At his unveiling, he told journalists he was raring to go.

‘There was no problem’

Cuisance said: “There was no problem with the medical, the one with Marseille went very well. I am in form and ready to play.

“At Leeds, there was no problem from my side.’

Those sentiments were echoed by Marseille director general of football Pablo Longoria.

“We did not find any issues with his medical, everything was done properly. He is completely available, at 100 per cent,” he said.

Buy-back clause

Marcelo Bielsa’s men had agreed a €20 million fee for the Frenchman, prior to the move falling through.

Despite rumours of the Frenchman’s failed medical, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said he believed the move collapsed because of disagreements over a buy-back clause.

Cuisance joined Bayern from fellow-Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach on a five-year deal in August 2019.

He made 11 senior appearances across all competitions last season, helping Der FCB to a domestic double (Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal) and the Champions League.

However, he wasn’t involved in the club’s UEFA Super Cup and German Super Cup triumphs, which completed a quintuple of titles.
