Birmingham City have reportedly knocked back a £3m Leeds United bid for the service of midfielder, George Hall.
Leeds have placed more focus on senior recruitment this season, preparing Jesse Marsch’s squad for the Premier League.
There has been interest in bolstering the U21s as well, with Hall someone that probably fits into that category despite him emerging into the Birmingham first-team.
As per a report from Football Insider, Birmingham have knocked back Leeds’ offer of £3m for the service of Hall.
It wasn’t an up-front £3m, with the total package eventually worth that fee if everything falls into place.
Hall started and scored for Blues last night in their 1-1 draw with Watford. The 18-year-old has now made four Championship appearances for Birmingham.
Leeds have signed Sonny Perkins already this summer, adding the former West Ham United forward into their U21s.
Quiz: One question about every Leeds United first-team player – Can you score 100%?
Hall is a player that’s catching headlines in the Championship right now.
He’s impressing for Birmingham and starting to start game for John Eustace now.
A package worth £3m isn’t really a lot given the teenager’s talent and it’s little surprise it’s been knocked back.
The question for Leeds now is whether or not they are going to come back in with an increased offer.
Is it worth more than £3m to Leeds?
Hall wouldn’t impact the first-team at Elland Road right now, but the midfielder is one of the future and a really exciting prospect.
