Leeds’ hopes of landing Che Adams not helped by his sub appearance

It’s hard to keep track of what’s going on with the current Che Adams to Leeds transfer saga, but if anyone needs a refresher here’s where we’re at right now.

Leeds want Adams and the striker wants the move according to The Athletic.

Meanwhile, the Southampton board are willing to let him go if the Whites are ready to agree to a loan with an obligation to buy for at least £10m.

However, Ralph Hasenhuttl wants to keep the player, and that could scupper the whole deal.

Unfortunately, Adams’ latest showing won’t have helped Hasenhuttl change his mind on his future as he showed exactly what he can offer the Saints with his late contribution.


Having beaten both Chelsea and Tottenham over the past few weeks you can understand why Hasenhuttl thought his team could go on and find a winner against Leicester when the game was 1-1 late in the day on Saturday.

Despite having lost 9-0 to the Foxes at St Mary’s he wanted to go on the offensive at the King Power Stadium, and he made a change in the 77th minute that paid off spectacularly.

Enter Che Adams.

Off the bench

Adams didn’t have much time to make his impact, but he did exactly what was required of him.

How much did Leeds pay to sign Adam Forshaw from Middlesbrough?

Four touches in 13 minutes isn’t the recipe for an incredible performance, but the former Birmingham City man did provide the assist for the game’s decisive goal.

Despite the ball being stuck under his feet, Adams managed to play Danny Ings in on goal, and as he has done so many times this term, the former Liverpool man applied the finish.

Hasenhuttl has stated that Adams is important to what he wants to do for the rest of the season, and his contribution here will have further reinforced that view, and that could affect Leeds’ chances of landing the striker.
