Leeds United news: The Whites are’set for a meeting’ with a transfer target after making a’much better’ claim.

Leeds United transfer rumours and news as the Whites continue their pre-season preparations.

Following their defeat to AS Monaco, Leeds United are now preparing for a pre-season match against Nottingham Forest.

With the start of the new season less than two weeks away, the Whites are ramping up their summer preparations. Behind the scenes, though, there is still much work to be done, with Daniel Farke needing to add to his squad following a series of loan exits this summer. Leeds are expected to make further additions this week and next.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of all the latest Elland Road news and transfer rumours.

Meeting

Leeds United are allegedly planning a meeting with RB Leipzig attacker Yussuf Poulsen to discuss a possible trade.

According to Yenicag, the Whites have made an offer for the forward, who has only one offer on the table. Poulsen is now due to meet with Leeds ahead of a possible transfer, according to reports.
The 29-year-old has scored 70 goals in 280 league appearances for RB Leipzig since 2013.

Wober’s potential impact
Max Wober‘s potential departure to Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach may force fellow wantaway Leeds players to compete for the club’s one remaining outgoing international loan this summer.
FIFA rules allow clubs to make seven incoming and seven exiting foreign loans during the season. Leeds presently have five players on loan at foreign clubs: Robin Koch, Brenden Aaronson, Diego Llorente, Rasmus Kristensen, and Marc Roca, with Max Wober set to become the sixth if a loan transfer to German club Monchengladbach is completed.

Wober‘s potential transfer became known following his absence from Leeds‘ friendly against AS Monaco last weekend. The Austrian international took no part in the 2-0 defeat, having notified the club that he intended to leave this season, having only joined in January for £10 million from FC Red Bull Salzburg.

If Wober becomes the third Leeds player to join a Bundesliga club on loan this summer, following Koch and Aaronson, the club will only have one outgoing international loan available in 2023/24. According to FIFA regulations, “a club may have a maximum of eight professionals loaned out and eight loaned in at any given time during a season from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023.”

“From July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024, the same configuration applies, but with a maximum of seven professionals.”

A Wober departure would almost certainly compel Leeds to pursue sells rather than loans for the rest of Daniel Farke‘s team, unless deals could be reached with clubs in the United Kingdom, as FIFA does not govern domestic loans.

Message from James
Dan James has delivered a confident message to Leeds fans and Whites players ahead of the new Championship season under new manager Daniel Farke.

Wales international winger James has returned to Elland Road following a loan spell at Fulham last season, during which the Cottagers finished tenth, while the winger’s parent side Leeds were relegated after being second-bottom.
However, James claims that the mood in the squad is now “great” ahead of the upcoming Championship season, and that United’s squad boasts the players capable of carrying out new coach Farke’s daring footballing strategy.

Leeds played their latest pre-season friendly against visiting AS Monaco on Saturday, falling 2-0 as a second-half penalty from Wissam Ben Yedder was followed by a flying Kevin Volland header.
But, according to James, United’s possession-based attacking ambition under Farke was visible to everybody, and his team would only improve as they gain health ahead of the new season.

“We have definitely shown him the way he wants to play,” James told LUTV. “We want to be a possession-dominant team.” You can’t constantly go full out and win the ball back, but I think we want to be a strong pressing club, we want to win the ball back, and I think we want to win it back as soon as we lose it, and we have the guys to do it. We’ll get much better at it as we get fitter.”
