Leeds United transfer news: Zuber heads elsewhere, recruitment in Orta’s hands and Baker departs

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

Zuber goes elsewhere

Leeds United will not be signing Swiss international Steven Zuber. The club had been linked with a move for the player by Bild earlier in the month and the Mirror highlighted his £10.8 million asking price yesterday.

However, he has joined Stuttgart on loan for the rest of the season.

Speaking on the official Stuttgart website the winger explained he was ‘convinced’ from the ‘very first second’ that he wanted to join the club.

Baker leaves

As expected, Lewis Baker has ended his loan spell at Leeds United. The Chelsea-owned midfielder has headed back to Stamford Bridge after activating a termination clause in his Leeds loan deal.

He is now expected to be sent elsewhere on loan for the rest of the season.

 

Baker had struggled to hold down a permanent place in the Leeds United first-team and had struggled to make an impact when given a chance by Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa on former players

Bielsa spoke in his press conference today about signing former player. As reported by Leeds Live, he made it clear that Victor Orta was the man who identifies transfer targets.

He stated he is proposed players and then he gives his ‘opinion’ before a decision is made on signing the player.

It comes after recent links with former Bielsa player Ibai Gomez.
