Leeds United round-up: Vydra not imminent, Hernandez no-go and Mbakogu finally done?

All the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Vydra not imminent

Reports in the Czech Republic have tried to calm the situation involving Matej Vydra and Leeds United. After it emerged the Czech national was not on his way to the Derby County pre-season training camp in Tenerife it was quickly reported that an £11 million move to Leeds was imminent.

But iSport, who appear to have done some digging into the situation involving the transfer, make it clear talks are not yet at a stage where a deal would be considered imminent.

Instead, Vydra was simply left behind as he is potentially up for sale this summer – to Leeds or not.

(during the Serie A match between Carpi FC and SS Lazio at Alberto Braglia Stadium on May 8, 2016 in Modena, Italy.

Unable to sign Abel

One man who appears to not be on his way to Leeds is Abel Hernandez. The striker has priced himself out of a move. Just as he did two years ago when wanted by Aston Villa, the Uruguayan has asked for too much money.

Alan Nixon from The Sun has suggested the deal is at 0 out of 10 on the possibility scale.

Mbakogu good to go

But the long-running Jerry Mbakogu ordeal shows signs of coming to a conclusion. Whilst the press in England barely report it, in Italy they seem certain Leeds want to sign the Carpi striker.

That is no different today.

Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that Leeds have managed to get his asking price down to £1.6 million and will, therefore, conclude the signing.

Now this a reputable source, so perhaps Leeds will finally snap up the striker.
