Leeds missed a trick with La Liga midfielder Nemanja Radoja

Leeds United ended up having a decent transfer window last summer, with the additions of players such as Helder Costa, Ben White and Ilan Meslier all bringing quality to Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team sit top of the Championship table as it stands and are waiting patiently like the rest of football while it’s on hold due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

But the Whites can perhaps reflect now on one reported transfer target that slipped through their fingers.

TEAMtalk reported in August 2019 that Leeds were battling Premier League duo West Ham and Brighton for free agent Nemanja Radoja, who was looking to seal a move to England for the first time in his career.

He was available on a free transfer after having his contract at Celta Vigo expire and his future was up in the air.

Radoja joined Spanish top-flight club Levante on a free transfer and he’s been an important player for them since.

The 27-year-old is a defensive midfielder that sits in front of the back four breaking up play and he’s strong on the ball too.

He’s played 18 games across all competitions this season for a Levante team that sit 13th in La Liga and would have played more if not for a muscle injury, but he’s shown he can cut it at a top level.

Leeds have certainly needed cover for their talisman Kalvin Phillips in the squad this season and Radoja looks like he would have be ideal competition.
