Leeds United news round-up: Bartley goes elsewhere, Blackman signs and Radrizzani ends Bari deal

All the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Bartley disappointment

Leeds will not be signing Kyle Bartley this summer. The long linked central defender has instead joined West Brom in a deal worth an eventual £6 million, as reported by the Birmingham Mail.

Leeds had been in contact with Swansea City earlier in the summer about the potential of snapping up Bartley. Leeds fans were very impressed with the rumour, as Bartley remains a fan favourite because of his form at Elland Road during a 2016-17 loan campaign.

But the defender will now be a rival in the Championship next season with the recently relegated Baggies.

Blackman signs

Leeds have finally solved their goalkeeping problem for next season. Jamal Blackman has arrived on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and rejected a move to Vitesse Arnhem to make a move to West Yorkshire.

Leeds needed a new keeper after letting both Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan go recently.

 

Radrizzani will not be a saviour

Yesterday it was being reported that Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani was set to save Italian side Bari from extinction.

He was reportedly putting together a saviour package for the Serie B club who are in serious financial trouble.

However, as reported by La Repubblica, that will no longer be happening.

New debts have been discovered at the club and Radrizzani has therefore pulled out of any deal.

Sadly, Bari are now expected to be liquidated
