Earlier this week Leeds United were linked with a move for Serbian international midfielder Nemanja Radoja. TEAMtalk suggested that Leeds were looking into the possible signature of the free agent.
Radoja, who missed the entire 2018-19 season through injury, is a free agent after being released by Celta Vigo.
Leeds were credited with an interest with the player, considering he can still be signed despite the transfer window being closed.
However, Leeds are not alone in their apparent interest. More plausible links are emerging from Spain this week.
Levante have been reportedly chasing his signature throughout the summer. According to La Provincias, that deal is now looking unlikely. Levante are currently trying to balance their Financial Fair Play and no new arrivals are likely until the club make a big sale.
Real Betis, however, are a more formidable foe. Mundo Deportivo suggests that Betis are once again interested in a player they were linked with earlier this summer. It is suggested Levante’s failed move has reignited the Verdiblancos’ interest in a bargain recruit.
Leeds’ ‘interest’ in Radoja always seemed flakey at best. Whilst he is a top player, the club are already on the brink with their own FFP issues and Radoja’s lack of recent action would make him an unusual arrival.
With Betis now looming and Levante actively trying to juggle the finances to make a deal happen, Leeds’ chances of bringing him in are looking slim.
