Leeds United will reportedly fail with any potential loan move for Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow in January.
According to the Chronicle, Marcelo Bielsa’s side will see any loan attempt for the 28-year-old knocked back in the New Year.
The report details that only a cash offer for the £4million-rated ace could convince Newcastle to grant his exit from St James’ Park.
Leeds should stump up the minimal £4million fee to bring the shot-stopper to Elland Road, as he’d be another huge boost to the fight for promotion from the Championship.
Bielsa’s team are currently top of the division and dreaming of a top-flight return, with a stunning seven-game winning run help them get into a great position.
But there are certainly some weaknesses in number one goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and the Yorkshire giants desperately need competition for the second half of the season.
Darlow is an experienced goalkeeper that has proven himself in the Championship before and is a presence in net.
A £4million masterstroke could be enough to get Leeds over the line this term for promotion and they should pay the necessary amount for the Newcastle goalkeeper.
