Leeds United round-up: Brown comeback brace, Casilla before Stoke, James £3m target and Sacko choice

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

Brown back

Izzy Brown has scored twice on his most recent comeback from injury. The Chelsea loanee arrived at the club with a knee injury but was hoping to be in action by the start of January. However, he suffered a minor hamstring strain before Christmas that ruled him out a while longer.

He bagged a brace as Leeds defeated Crewe Alexandra 2-0 and will be hoping to be in first-team action by the start of February.

Transfer business

Two pieces of transfer news now. Leeds United are hopeful of securing a deal for goalkeeper Kiko Casilla before the weekend clash with Stoke City.

The YEP reports that Leeds have set up a deal involving the buy-out of his remaining contract at the Bernabeu. No traditional fee will, therefore, be paid for the player.

 

Leeds are also keen on Daniel James of Swansea City. The same report suggests the Welshman is free to speak to Leeds if they meet his valuation. That is believed to be north of £3 million.

Sacko race

Hadi Sacko has a choice of two teams for his next destination. The Mali winger has struggled on loan at Las Palmas and his loan spell at the Spanish club is set to be terminated.

As reported by La Provincia, Cypriot side AEK Larnaca and Hungarian outfit MOL Vidi are both keen on the Leeds outcast.
