Leeds United centre-back Max Wöber is impressing at Borussia Monchengladbach to the point where a permanent move has been mooted, and it could have a considerable impact on Leeds signing Joe Rodon.

The Whites did extremely well in the summer to not only replaced the departed players with adequate numbers in the summer window, but have actually ended up improving in most areas too.

Centre-back was a key area of concern for Daniel Farke in the summer, but he looks to have a settled and assured centre-back partnership in Pascal Struijk and Joe Rodon.

Max Wöber to be sold permanently?

Away from Elland Road, Max Wöber is someone that Leeds fans have little time for, after vowing his commitment to stay at the club following relegation, only to jump ship at the first sign of a club wanting him in the top flight.

He’s performing fairly well with his new club in the Bundesliga, Borussia Monchengladbach, and reports from Rheinische Post claimed that the defender is someone Farke’s previous club should be looking to sign, valued at £12.6million currently.

His performances have made him a popular figure at Monchengladbach, and the report implores the club to make him a permanent fixture.

Will he fund a Rodon purchase?

£12.6million is a fee that Leeds simply cannot turn down if that is the case, because not only would we be making profit on a failure of a signing, but he funds other business.

At present, one of Leeds’ most important defenders is on loan in Rodon, and when his loan deal expires, he’ll still likely be surplus to requirements at Tottenham.

He will want to find a new permanent home, and the money coming in for Wöber should go a long way to paying for Rodon, if not fully covering how much he’d cost.

His contract will be in the final 12 months in the summer of 2024, meaning that we might not have to pay over the odds to bring him in.
