Last night it emerged that Leeds United had held talks over the potential signing of Aston Villa winger Albert Adomah.
Birmingham Live reported that the Ghana winger was in a contract dispute with Aston Villa and could leave before the window shuts this evening.
For Leeds United, it would be a coup.
Adomah had an excellent season last term. His 15 goals and seven assists made him Aston Villa’s Players’ Player of the Year.
Leeds look well stocked going forward, but the opportunity to bring in someone with the Championship experience Adomah has cannot be passed up easily.
Of course, Victor Orta knows him well. The pair worked together at the Riverside when Adomah was a Middlesbrough player.
In fact, Orta would have been party to the sanctioning of his transfer to Aston Villa in the summer of 2016.
It was an amicable split, with Adomah wanting to try his hand somewhere else for some time.
Therefore Leeds could have an advantage in any race to bring Adomah in. Securing a permanent move before the window shuts today seems unlikely. However, if Leeds can convince Villa into loaning him to Elland Road before the end of the month, it could be the missing piece of the jigsaw as Leeds look to win promotion.
