Reports in Italy suggest that Ronaldo Vieira is set to join Sampdoria for around €7m, with a medical taking place tomorrow.

This is an interesting move if it comes off because although Vieira seemed to be in Leeds’ “B” team in preseason, he did start against Las Palmas. Part of me thinks this isn’t a terrible move like Leeds have made numerous times in the past, Vieira was inconsistent last year and doesn’t seem to be one of Bielsa’s favourites. However he has the potential to be a Premier League level player for sure so it’s definitely disappointing to be losing him.
If the move is completed, it suggests we may see another central midfielder arrive before deadline day and it should also mean we see more of Klich, who has played himself into contention.
Let us know what you think about this, do you want Ronaldo Vieira to stay?
