Phil Hay: “At least” one bid prepared for Leeds United man

Leeds United defender Charlie Cresswell could be looking at an exit from Elland Road this month as the club table permanent offers.

Leeds’ investment into youth signings is paying off massively at the moment, with some of Jesse Marsch’s most influential players being long-term investments.

Such investment also has been aided by loan moves to the EFL, but for Charlie Cresswell, it’s a loan that has gone the other direction at Millwall.

Cresswell’s time with the Lions has gone fairly pear-shaped compared to what was expected of him this season, earmarked as a potential key player for the future.

Being dropped by Gary Rowett looks to have Leeds reconsidering his time at Elland Road, and his loan at the New Den might be cut short.

The Athletic’s Phil Hay is reporting that as Leeds consider terminated his spell with Millwall, it comes alongside the club weighing up selling the player permanently.

At least one prominent Championship club want Cresswell permanently and the option is not off the table. It is not even 18 months since the England Under-21 international made his Premier League debut, and a good one at that.

Meanwhile, Leeds are plotting to sign young Servette centre-back Diogo Monteiro this month, who turns 18 towards the end of January – per Phil Hay.

Should Leeds sell Cresswell?





It’s a shame that Cresswell’s standing has gone so quickly downhill and I do think we are rushing this decision by doing it now.

If we sell him now to a Championship club, we won’t get nearly a big enough fee to justify selling a player with good potential like him.

Monteiro is a smart way to replace him, but it still seems short-sighted to sanction Cresswell’s exit permanently.
