Leeds have actually been linked with a move for the Gent attacker Jonathan David this summer.
The club’s chairman has now exposed that Leeds have undoubtedly submitted an offer for the player.
David is believed to be keen on a move to French outfit Lille however his club won’ t sell him to the French side if they attempt to sign him with a low offer.
Leeds’ offer is believed to be better than that of the Ligue 1 side.
De Witte stated to De Zondag ( through Sportwitness): ” I have only revealed my inconvenience that contacts have actually been made with Lille behind our back, that Jonathan has plainly jam-packedalready Against allrules A managed action from his representative and theclub There were no contacts last week, however that they have actually made a transfer difficult since of that is a bridge too far. ( smiles) There are already lots of dead in the tomb of ‘principles’.
“In addition, I know Jonathan myself as an exceptionally fair and sensible boy with a super mentality and attitude. A few weeks ago it still sounded loud that he only wants to go to the Bundesliga and now he necessarily wants to go to France… isn’t that really bizarre? As if Lille would be such a great step forward for Jonathan. Is one then thinking of the player’s career? The contacts were stopped this week, but other clubs are still interested. With much better proposals even. Including Leeds.”
It appears that Lille have actually persuaded the player however they will need to persuade his club now.
It will be intriguing to see where David ends up ultimately. Leeds might definitely utilize somebody like him next season.
The 20- year-old attacker has 21 goals to his name this past season and he would enhance the Whites moving forward. Bielsa can not intend to handle the Premier League with Bamford as his only goalscorer.
David is a huge skill with a big future ahead of him. Offered Bielsa’s track record in enhancing players, he might work marvels with the young Belgian.
Bielsa might be the man to open the 20- year-old’s true capacity. The move to the Premier League would allow him to play at a high level.
