Good Morning. It's Tuesday 29th October, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road


James heads the wanted list

It has been revealed that Leeds next top target is Manchester Utd winger Daniel James, but the deal will only go through if the Red side of Manchester can land Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

If the real cannot be constructed, Leeds will activate Ryan Kent's 20m activation fee.

Country to media reports, both players would be keen to join the Whites.



Leeds target involved in training bust up with Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski 'leveled' Leeds target Michael Cuisance with a tackle in training, leaving the 21-year-old down for the count. Upon gathering himself, Cuisance allegedly made a move toward Lewandowski, unaware of the Pole's kickboxing background.

No punches or kicks were thrown, but the two were separated whilst Cuisance “wildly gesticulated at the Pole. Bayern Manager Hansi Flick was keen to get between the two to calm the situation down.

Cuisance has already let it be known that he wants to leave Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in search of more regular first-team opportunities.

Leeds have agreed personal terms with the 21-year-old French youth international, but are still negotiating a fee with the German giants.



Leeds chasing talented left back

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Leeds are among a number of clubs interested in taking Ryan Sessegnon on loan from Spurs

The 20-year-old's opportunities have been limited since his 25m move last from Fulham last Summer where he made 106 appearances, netting 22 times.

He has also been capped 14 times for England U21's.

Sessegnon can either play at left-back or further forward on the wing.

Leeds, Southampton, Ajax and Brighton are also interested in the young wing back.

Tottenham will be looking for a loan fee and the player’s wages paid in full.

The Longest running takeover saga in history has come to an end.

The Saudi bid (with some token Brits) has been withdrawn.

Newcastle will either be stuck with Mike Ashley or that Yank dude.

Feel sorry for Newcastle fans, good people.

I think we made a good deal with Harrison. Delaying the transfer fee another year makes sense and allows us to spend it on someone else this year. As he ages, his decisions and final ball should get better.

Yan Couto sounds like a good loan signing. Transfermarkt lists him as right footed and right back. I know Ayling could be upgraded, but hope our emphasis is on a bona fide left back

If we try to put relegation clauses in our offers, as sensible as they are, we'd more than halve the players willing to come and play here...So you can understand why Bournemouth didn't..

Shame for Bournemouth & Eddie Howe as he always tries to play football in the right manner
