Exclusive: David Norris has no concerns over Leeds United’s pulling power

Former Leeds United midfielder David Norris has told Football FanCast in an exclusive interview that he has no concerns over his old side’s ability to attract players.

The Yorkshire club have missed out on long-term target Rodrigo De Paul, with journalist Fabrizio Romano reporting that the 27-year-old will join Atletico Madrid this summer after the La Liga champions agreed a €35m (£30m) deal with Udinese.

Brighton’s Ben White, who spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Elland Road and was the subject of three bids from Leeds last summer, is also another player who looks to have got away.

Would you take White back for £50m

The Whites are said to be interested in White, but The Athletic claims that the central defender is close to signing for Arsenal.

Such developments are not a concern for Norris, though, who has confidence in his former club to attract players.

“I think it’s a massive club,” the ex-Leeds star exclusively told FFC. “Outside that top five or six, will definitely be in that next group of clubs for attracting the top players, so I don’t think that’ll be a problem now.”

Wolves’ Adama Traore is another player Leeds are thought to be targeting, though that does not look like it will be an easy deal to complete either, with Eurosport hinting at his price tag potentially being a problem.
