4 goals in 5 games: Failed £3.25m Leeds United target Brandley Kuwas finding form

The Dutch winger has been in good form this month.

This summer it was reported that Leeds United wanted to sign Brandley Kuwas from Dutch side Heracles Almelo. De Telegraaf reported, as relayed by Goal, that Leeds offered €3.7 million (£3.25 million) for the player’s services in the summer. The report even claimed the player and his agent waived any sign on fee to help the move happen. However, Leeds came up short of Heracles’ valuation and Kuwas stuck around in the Eredivisie.

He is now showing just what Leeds might be missing out on. Kuwas scored twice this weekend as Heracles defeated FC Groningen 4-1. After a slow start to the season, perhaps due to the transfer speculation over the summer, Kuwas is now firing.

He has four goals in his last five games, also providing two assists during that period. He certainly looks like a player Leeds are missing out on at present.

However, some Leeds fans will be sceptical. They have a right to be. Previous recruits from Dutch football such as Jay-Roy Grot and Jordan Botaka hardly took Elland Road by storm.


It is hard to see Kuwas bringing more to the table then Jack Harrison or academy prodigy Jack Clarke. At over £3.25 million, he would have represented a sizeable investment for Leeds, in something of an unknown commodity.

He may be in form, but Leeds were right not to splash out on the player this summer.
