Leeds United round-up: Denton wanted by Cellino, Cabit wanted and Ekuban future

Cellino wants Denton

Massimo Cellino may now complete a double raid of his old cub this summer, according to reports. The controversial former Leeds chairman is now the owner of Serie B side Brescia. They are closing in on the signature of underused Swedish strike Marcus Antonsson, who is believed to be on his way out of the club.

Now, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Cellino wants 22-year-old Leeds left-back Tyler Denton at Brescia.

The deal would reportedly be a loan move, with the view to making it permanent after one season.

Denton has failed to progress into a full-time regular at Elland Road.

Force of Cabit

The Daily Mirror (liveblog, 19/06/18, 13:48) is reporting that Marcelo Bielsa has his first target as Leeds United manager. The player in question is AC Ajaccio left-back Manuel Cabit.

The 25-year-old is out of contract this summer and Leeds are said to be battling with three French sides for his signature.

Leeds need to bring in a new left-back this summer, with it a problem area throughout last season for the club.

Ekuban to go

Leeds could let Caleb Ekuban leave this summer. A report from Ghana Soccernet has confirmed the player is not in Marcelo Bielsa’s plans for next season and could be let go.

The Italian striker joined last summer from Chievo after an impressive season on loan in Albanian football.

However, he has struggled to find any form in West Yorkshire and could now depart.
