Leeds United round-up: O’Kane interest, Konate linked and Edmondson contract

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

O’Kane interest

Charlton Athletic are hopeful of signing Leeds United midfielder Eunan O’Kane. The Republic of Ireland international has been training with the Leeds under-23s after Marcelo Bielsa decided he was not a part of their first-team plans.

The Addicks, who are managed by former Leeds midfielder Lee Bowyer, are now hoping to secure a deal for the player.

Konate on radar

Leeds are reportedly eyeing up a move for Amiens striker Moussa Konate. L’Equipe suggest that Leeds want the 25-year-old who scored 16 goals in all competitions last season.

The report also claims that Brentford are interested in the player. Leeds have snapped up Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough this summer. However, it seems that the Whites are looking to bring in another attacker.

Edmondson deal

Leeds United have handed a new contract to young striker Ryan Edmondson. The 17-year-old joined from York City in November 2017 and has impressed in the under-23s.

He made his senior debut last season and has now signed a new deal which lasts until 2021.

Leeds will hope that he can fulfill his potential at Elland Road.
