Leeds United closing in on transfer agreement as rival suitors back out

It seems that Leeds United could be set to make their first signing of the summer transfer window.

That’s after a report from Corriere Di Bologna claimed that the Elland Road club are closing in on a deal for young Aberdeen full-back, Calvin Ramsay.

Although we are now into the penultimate day of the January transfer window, Leeds have yet to complete a first-team signing.

They have however, been linked with a number of targets, one of which is Ramsay, with recent reports suggesting they are battling Serie A side Bologna for his services.

Now however, it seems as though things could be opening up for Leeds to get a deal done here.

According to this latest update, Bologna have now pulled out of the race for Ramsay, due to Aberdeen’s demands of an obligation to buy being included in the deal.

As a result, Leeds are now said to be closing in on the signing of the 18-year-old, and have apparently already made a £3million offer, with a re-sale clause included in the deal.

This could potentially be a rather useful deal for Leeds you feel.

Admittedly, right-back is probably not the biggest priority for Leeds at the minute, when you consider who they are missing at centre forward and centre midfield.

However, it could certainly still be argued that they are lacking some natural cover for Luke Ayling on the right-hand side of their defence.

With that in mind, a move for Ramsay could still benefit Leeds, and given the promise he is showing at such a young age, this would secure them a long term asset for the future as well.
