Leeds United’s hunt for a striker is far from over as they’ve now seemingly missed out on Che Adams’ signature.
United still need a forward, but the players they’ve got their eyes on may not be viable options at this moment in time.
We probably knew this was coming after Ralph Hasenhuttl’s comments on the striker earlier this month, but Sky Sports are now reporting that Southampton are unwilling to let Leeds bring in the forward.

This is something of a blow for United as he was apparently Marcelo Bielsa’s first-choice striker, but what’s even more annoying is the state of play with their other targets.
Fortunately, reliable journalists and websites have consistently reported Leeds’ interest in other striking options.
Dwight Gayle, Andre Gray and Billy Sharp have all had concrete links with a move to Elland Road, but it seems as if the Whites are currently at a dead-end when it comes to signing all three of those players.
Angus Kinnear’s plan to work quickly in this transfer window seems to be impossible now as many of Leeds’ reported targets seemingly aren’t going to be arriving anytime soon for one reason or another.
In other news, Leeds may finally be about to replace Chris Wood.
