Timo Werner move to Chelsea could have impact on Leeds United player’s future

Leeds United have not yet offered the Frenchman a new deal at Elland Road.

Leeds United fans may not get to see Jean-Kevin Augustin in action again following the most recent set of reports regarding the Frenchman.

The Whites have agreed deals to keep fellow loanees Illan Meslier, Jack Harrison, and Helder Costa at the club until the Championship season is concluded. Meanwhile, Gaetano Berardi, whose contract is due to expire this summer, has also agreed a short-term deal to play out the season. 

But there is currently no mention of plans regarding Augustin. 

As reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds are unsure whether to tie down an extension for the player who is battling with a hamstring problem.

 

But then there is also the case of his parent club RB Leipzig potentially needing him back.

The German side have a Champions League campaign to play in August but star frontman Timo Werner will play no part in it, due to his impending £48 million (talkSPORT) move to Chelsea. 

Danish forward Yussuf Poulsen is a major doubt for those fixtures with a serious ankle injury, leaving Leipzig desperately short of striking alternatives. Their other main striking option, Patrik Schick, is only on loan from Roma, and is also being linked with a permanent transfer elsewhere. 

It means Augustin could easily be seen as an option for the German side to help in their clear shortage of striking options. 

Augustin, whose career at Elland Road has simply never got started, might end with a whimper.
