Amidst the ownership crisis and the eventual win at Elland Road last night, the transfer scene has once again lit up at Leeds United.

With the capture of Sol Bamba all but confirmed, it has recently become known that Leeds are interested in Brazilian Midfielder, Renan Garcia.


Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post broke the news this morning when he tweeted – “Hearing that Leeds are also looking at Renan Garcia, ex-Sampdoria midfielder.”

Garcia, 28, is an ex-Sampdoria midfielder, who has featured around 50 times for both Sampdoria and Al Nasr since 2012, scoring a couple of goals.

Garcia joined Al Nasr in 2014, for a fee of just over a £1million.

He is primarily a defensive central midfielder, but due to being left-footed, he can also play out wide on the left if needed.

In total, he has featured 149 times in his career, scoring twelve goals. Most of these appearances took place in the Primeira Liga in Portugal.



  1. Hold on, this guy is 28 and has only made 149 appearances. Am i the only one thats a bit concerned with this. Dont we already have a defensive left footed midfielder …a certain Mr Austin, who looks revitalised in the 4231 formation? Lets renew his contract rather than dish out on an unknown.

    • The appearance thing surprised me as well to be fair. A few sites gabe the same stats. Really is worring. 28. Not many appearnaces. Plays in Dubai. Doesnt sound good at all! Im all onboard with the Austin thing. This formation is what we needed!
