Full German international (and current as he is in the latest squad).
24 year old 6ft 3 cb and dm who has also played in cm
Was a regular for Freiburg who finished 8th in the Bundesliga playing 32 out of 34 league matches.
Has played over 20 league games in all of his 3 seasons with Freiburg in the Bundesliga and has over 80 in total and over 150 career games to his name.
2 German caps and in the latest squad.
Came close to joining Leipzig in January and has many admirers including Spurs.
Price seems to range from the absolute bargain of £10mil to the not to bad fee of £20mil.
No guarantees we can get him but for a newly promoted side to sign the main striker for Spain (ranked 8th in the world) and the latest highly rated German cb, that would be a great statement.

Seriously, it's a shame that Brighton are being pissy about Ben but this guy looks like the best replacement we could hope for, and Mr Orta feels confident we might get him. I can't wait to see him holding the Leeds jersey up.

See? Doesn't have to be rude.
I think Koch and Rodrigo would be the bare minimum for me to be happy this window. Much more interested in seeing Koch confirmed before Kent.
Also, potential situation: we stay up this season, Brighton goes down and White forces a move for dirt cheap. Koch + White = new Woodgate + Ferdinand. Relatively speaking.
From what I can find Dave, definately not paying over the odds, given what we were prepared to part with for Ben... And completely agree 64 ... what a picture you paint there ...
Let us not forget with all these deals, it's Radrizzani's arse that is on the line, so Orta had better pull his finger out! cos we don't want a Koch up like JKA.HarryofOz wrote:Impressive resume. More good work by the Club.
