Another stumbling block has emerged in Leeds United’s attempts to sign Matej Vydra this summer. As reported by The Sun, the Czech Republic forward is waiting on a potential move to the Premier League.
Whilst he is keen on a £11 million move to Leeds, and his club Derby are prepared to sell, the 26-year-old is also wary that it might be time to try his talents in the Premier League again.
The former West Brom and Watford attacker was the Championship’s top-scorer last season.
Omeruo to follow?
Nigerian international defender Kenneth Omeruo has sparked talk of a Leeds United move, after commenting on new Leeds signing Jamal Blackman’s Instagram.
As reported by The 72, Omeruo commented ‘wait for me’ on Blackman’s post.
That has led many to wonder if he might be West Yorkshire bound.
Considering Leeds have also signed Lewis Baker on loan from Chelsea this summer, then a deal for former Middlesbrough loanee Omeruo is not beyond the realms of possibility.
Leeds United have ended their interest in Baghdad Bounedjah. The Algerian paper L’Expression reports that the Al Sadd striker was simply too expensive for Leeds.
The Qatari club wanted a fee in the region of £13.25 million for the player, who scored 25 goals in 19 games last season.
But considering his lack of European experience, Leeds were not willing to pay the quoted price.
