Leeds United are set for a busy end to the transfer window after Cellino released a statement stating that we have ended our interest in Fernando Forestieri and are now looking at new targets. Various sources have been quick to announce that Leeds have bid £500,000 for Rajiv van La Parra, a Dutch winger who currently plays for Wolves. However Brighton are also said to be interested and there’s no guarantee that Wolves are looking to sell. It’s good news though that we aren’t wasting any more time and are looking to sign new players. It’s also been reported that NEC’s manager in Holland has stated that Limbombe, another winger, wants to join Leeds. Although Leeds haven’t made an improved bid for him there’s still a chance that the deal can be done.
There’s also a possibility that we will see Bellusci leave the club, as it has been reported today that he likes the idea of moving back to Italy however Rosler is thought to want him to stay. Signing Liam Moore may change all of that however, Uwe went to watch him play for Leicester in the cup against Bury. I think Moore would be an upgrade on Bellusci but it seems to be a one-in, one-out situation. It wouldn’t make much sense to have five centre-backs. After the time wasted on Forestieri I’m pretty sure we’ll make another signing, if not two. We might have an entertaining deadline day for the first time in a while.
