With the news of Pontus Jansson transfer to Brentford on a £5.5 million deal, more concerns have been raised by Leeds fans on who and who will be leaving or coming this season. Will there be more incomings and outgoings in Leeds United’s transfer window to make it one of the busiest?
Today, I’d Radebe Leeds brings you all the incoming and outgoings so far in the summer transfer window for Leeds United.
Jack Harrison (Man city)
The Manchester City winger who was signed up for a loan last season with Leeds has moved to sign another year with the club in the 2019/2020 season. And there is a tendency of Lewd solidifying this loan by making it a permanent signing. In the previous season, Harrison made 42 appearances, scored 4 goals and provided four assists.
Ben White (Brighton)
Another loan transfer that Leeds has seen through is the transfer of the Centre-back, Ben White, from Brighton in premier league to Leeds.
Marcelo Bielsa particularly is excited about this transfer as he has been hellbent on getting white to the team for some time now.
Liam McCarron (Carlisle)
The 18-year old youngster made a bold move to sign a three -year deal with Leeds United on the 1st of July, 2019. The youngster is said to first link-up with the Under-23 team.
This signing wasn’t particularly easy for the whites as there were a lot of teams bidding for him.
Jack Clarke (Tottenham Hotspur)
Jason Clarke, who initially signed a permanent deal with Tottenham Hotspur returned to Leeds on a loan basis.
Helder Costa (Wolverhampton)
On July 3, 2019 Leeds made their biggest signing as they successfully poached the 25-year Portuguese winger from Wolverhampton.
He signed a 4-year contract which spans up to 2024 and will
be wearing the number 17 shirt for the team.
Rafa Mujica (Barcelona)
The 20-year old has been signed to play for the Whites via a free transfer. He has joined the club’s U-23 squad.
