Phil Hay: Leeds could recruit a permanent ace for £50 million.

The 49ers Group has a great chance of becoming well-known along Elland Road.

According to reporter Phil Hay, Leeds United has a real possibility of acquiring a player for a permanent contract who is valued at £50 million.

Leeds wants to push for a promotion.
Leeds could have been forgiven for feeling low on morale after their relegation from the Sky Bet Championship last season. Nevertheless, Daniel Farke has had a positive influence at Elland Road and has assembled a team that is expected to challenge for promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.


Leeds United has won five and lost one of their last six games. The Whites have 28 points from their first 15 league games, with their lone loss occurring against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium in late October. However, with Ipswich Town holding second position in the Sky Bet Championship and growing under Kieran McKenna, it will be challenging for the Whites to get into the Premier League at the first attempt.

For Farke and co. to cut the gap with the Tractor Boys, they will need to keep up their momentum. They will be eager to make sure their team wins three points against Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

Joe Rodon

As reported by BBC Sport, Farke acknowledged Plymouth Argyle‘s threat during his pre-match press conference, saying, “We have to be more spot on for this game than we were for the Leicester match.” Two circumstances during the season are very significant to me. One is how you respond in the event of a setback. This has happened to us already this season, and we have responded well with our performances and outcomes.”

Journalist Hay of The Athletic has now suggested that the 49ers may have a chance to sign a prominent player to a long-term contract at Elland Road.

Leeds may sign Joe Rodon to a long-term contract.
Speaking on the Square Ball Podcast, Hay hinted that Leeds would sign loanee Joe Rodon to a long-term contract even though the Wales international’s initial asking price was estimated to be about £50 million.

Hay said, “I don’t think that (Rodon joining permanently) is at all unlikely.” January is out of the question for me, but I believe it will happen eventually. Based on his playing style, he appears to be a very reliable acquisition.

“When Leeds initially contacted Tottenham regarding him, they were informed that his asking price was £50 million. “Listen, we just can’t do that,” Leeds answered, “so thank you very much and good bye.” Spurs then responded to the initial message, saying, “Actually, you could just have him on loan for a season.”

Daniel Farke

“I would have thought, the way he’s played so far, that he’ll be very much in Farke’s mind as someone who would be an advantage to keep beyond this season.”

Rodon appears to be a prudent addition from Leeds, averaging 3.8 clearances and 1.3 interceptions per game in the Sky Bet Championship. If the price drops a little, buying Rodon permanently may be a very smart move (Rodon statistics – WhoScored).
