Leeds United round-up: Bahlouli wanted, Male debut and sister club gets Morteza Pouraliganji

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

Lille attacker wanted

Leeds United are reportedly keeping track of Lille midfielder Fares Bahlouli. Yahoo Sports are suggesting that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa could raid his former team for the attacking midfielder.

The 23-year-old former French youth international is struggling for regular football at the Ligue 1 side and he could be lured in as cover in the attacking midfield positions.

Bielsa managed Lille for a period of last season, before leaving under a cloud.

You’ve got Male

Talented Leeds United keeper Harrison Male made his senior debut today. The 17-year-old was loaned out to local side Tadcaster Albion this weekend and it did not take long for Male to get his chance.

The teenager, who has represented England at under-16 level, came in and featured for the Evo-Stik League East Division side against Carlton Town.


He impressed many with his display, as reported by the York Press. However, his side lost 2-0. Fellow Leeds loanee Jack Vann also featured.

Morteza moves on

Leeds United were recently linked with a move for Iranian defender Morteza Pouraliganji. The World Cup star was linked with a move to Leeds by the Tasnim News Agency – after a move to Trabzonspor collapsed.

However, he is heading elsewhere, to a team that Leeds fans might be familiar with.

He has joined KAS Eupen in Belgium. The club are owned by the ASPIRE Foundation.

Leeds have strong links with the company due to director Ivan Bravo being at both entities.
