Good Morning. It's Tuesday 6th August, and here are the Leeds Utd headlines...
Bon Voyage to Roofe
Kemar Roofe was in Belgium yesterday undergoing his medical ahead of his 7m transfer to Anderlecht. The 26yo has agreed a 3 year deal with Vincent Kompany's team. Is 7m a satisfactory amount considering Roofe was entering the last year of his contract?
Radrizzani goes shopping in Milan
Whilst we waited for the ink to dry at Lotto Park, Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani had been in Milan, shopping for a replacement. Word soon filtered back to LS11 that our Italian matherick had found not one, but two players he could tick off from Bielsa's shopping list, both found at the San Siro Stadium.
Facundo Colidio is an Argentine International forward at U17 and U20 level. He has been with Inter Milan for two years, but is yet to make his debut. He has however appeared 31 times in all competitions for Inter’s Primavera last season, scoring 12 goals and creating six assists. Colidio (19yo) arrived from Boca Juniors for €7 million.
The second player is 20yo Ryan Nolan. He lived in Shannon, County Clare until he was eight-years old, at which time his family relocated to Spain. Whilst there, he caught the attention of a Inter scout who persuaded him to move to Italy on his 16th birthday. Last term he captained Inter's U19 side, and has also appeared in friendly games for the first team. Nolan is a Republic of Ireland U18 International. Both player have agreed terms with Leeds, though negotiations continued into the evening at the San Siro regarding transfer fees.
48 hours to deadline day
With the transfer window slamming shut in two days time, how many incoming transfers would you expect between now and then? Could we see Ryan Kent arrive on deadline day or is that too much to ask? Will the two signings from Inter be ready for the Championship? On a scale of 1-10, how happy are you with Leeds Summer dealings?
