Leeds will no doubt still be disappointed by failing to seal promotion to the Premier League last season. However, a good transfer window may see them once again push to gain access to the top tier. Today’s Leeds transfer roundup includes good news in regards to a member of the backroom staff, a rejected loan approach and an update in regards to a targeted striker.
Abad to stay
According to Spanish outlet Onda Cero, Marcos Abad will not be joining Spanish club Elche. The 33-year-old goalkeeping coach had been of interest, but has renewed his contract following Marcelo Bielsa’s extension and will now stay at Elland Road.
No loan for Saiz
The Whites have rejected a loan approach from an unnamed Spanish club for Samuel Saiz according to the Football Insider. Saiz spent last season out on loan at Getafe, who had the option to sign him on a permanent deal, but he did not impress enough. Leeds want to sell the player rather than see him go out on a temporary basis once again.
Leeds interested in Frey
Michael Frey is a target for Leeds according to TurksVoetbal. The Fenerbahce player has scored five goals and contributed one assist during the past campaign. Leeds are interested but do not wish to pay more than €2m (£1.8m) for the striker.
