It’s very hard to keep track of developments regarding Leeds’ multiple loan exits that were sanctioned in the summer months, and the hope is that most of those players are leaving permanently in the near future.
Max Wöber left Leeds with an acrimonious reaction from the Elland Road fans, and he’s one of plenty that won’t be welcome back in 2024.
What’s the latest on his transfer?
Borussia Monchengladbach have endured something of a slow start in the Bundesliga this season, taking six games to record their first win, coming against VfL Bochum, where Wöber notched his second assist of the season.
It has led to a report from Rheinische Post outlining why the German outfit need to do everything to sign the Austrian international from Elland Road.
They enthuse about the centre-back’s leadership qualities in defence, with a reported value of £12.6million attached to his head as things stand.
Would you welcome any of the loan players back?
Get rid ASAP
There are multiple reasons why this revelation from Germany is great news for Leeds, and why they need to be looking to cash in.
Having joined Leeds for £10million in January, he contributed to Leeds’ relegation as defensive performances fell off a cliff in April under Javi Gracia.
After that, he reportedly vowed his loyalty to the club as he aimed to stay and fight for promotion, only to turn his back on those claims by jumping at the first offer, leading to this hilarious sarcasm from Mateusz Klich about Wöber’s self-proclaimed “warrior” comments:
To make £2.6million profit on a player that doesn’t nearly have the right mentality to be here, nor was good enough, is great business and would be a huge boost in 2024.
Not only that, but Pascal Struijk looks twice the player under Daniel Farke.
