Junior Firpo's wife drops further hint on Instagram ahead of a reportedly imminent move to Leeds
Junior Firpo is reportedly closing in on a move to Leeds United this summer, with a deal in place with Barcelona. Now, the player’s wife has further hinted a move is close with a two-word post on her Instagram story. An announcement is close, with Firpo in Yorkshire.
Firpo, 24, should sign for Leeds early this week. Fabrizio Romano stated on Monday in a Tweet that the two clubs had completely agreed on a fee – believed to be £13.5million plus add-ons. Romano also states that the two parties are in agreement over personal terms, and only medicals remain.
That was 24 hours ago. So, Leeds fans should expect to see the arrival of Firpo on Tuesday or Wednesday, and now, his partner has dropped another hint on Instagram. Julia Torralbo posted a picture of the couple’s daughter on a plane, with the post entitled “bon voyage”.
With Firpo joining after wife post, what is left for Leif Davis at Leeds?
Gjanni Alioski has already left the club on a free transfer, after confirmation on Monday. The North Macedonia international’s contract expired last week. It leaves Stuart Dallas as the most-senior option on the left side of the defence, but he will continue his role in midfield.
Leeds need a left-back, then. Firpo is set to arrive, with 21-year-old Davis the next-best option in the Under-23 side. The left-sided defender has been a regular for the 23’s but has been unable to build on a solid start in the senior side. Perhaps Davis needs a loan move this summer.
