Leeds United round-up: £5m for Douglas, Bamford an alternative and Diagne passport

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Douglas close

Leeds are closing in on the signature of Barry Douglas from Wolves.

Reports emerged yesterday that the two clubs had agreed a fee and Douglas was told he was allowed to leave Molineux.

The Scotland international, who provided 14 assists last season, is set to undergo a medical before completing a £3 million move – according to Sky Sports. The Yorkshire Evening Post puts the price-tag closer to £5 million.

Vydra alternative

Leeds United are also targeting Patrick Bamford of Middlesbrough, according to the YEP. It comes with the club struggling to secure a deal for Derby star Matej Vydra.

Leeds director of football Victor Orta helped a permanent deal for Bamford to Boro come to fruition in 2017.


With Vydra stalling, Leeds have identified the Boro hitman as a potential alternative.

Diagne passport

Mbaye Diagne, the £3.6 million transfer target playing for Kasimpasa, is applying for an Italian passport.

According to Turkish Football the striker, who scored 12 goals in 17 games in Turkish football last season, remains a Leeds target but would require a work permit.

However, the Senegalese striker grew up in Italy and is hopeful he can obtain an EU passport which would negate such a process.
