Leeds United loaned out Max Wöber to Borussia Mönchengladbach during the summer, and the Bundesliga club are keen on making his stay permanent in the coming months.

The Whites are doing just fine without the players that opted to jump ship during the summer months, utilising loan clauses in their contracts to escape the Championship.

Not many of them have been total success stories so far at their new clubs, but there have been multiple permanent deals reported to be in the pipeline.

Max Wöber a permanent target for Borussia Mönchengladbach

German outlet Rheinische Post are claiming that Borussia Mönchengladbach are keen on making sure Max Wöber remains their player beyond his loan spell at the club.

At present, the Bundesliga outfit don’t have the sort of budget to go out and spend big to sign Wöber permanently in 2024.

That could be helped by their progress in the DFB-Pokal, as they face third tier side Saarbrücken in the quarter-final of that competition in early February.

Wöber’s loan deal holds no option for Mönchengladbach to make it permanent, as they wait to see how Leeds fare in the Championship, given that promotion could have a major bearing on the club’s plans and how much he’s valued at.

Max Wöber stats this season

Wöber left Leeds after just six months at the club, and wasn’t someone that was particularly missed, as much as the manner of his exit left a rotten taste.

He’s moved to the Bundesliga where his new side are finding the same leaky issues at the back that he encountered at Leeds.

Much-needed income from Wöber on the cards

Wöber won’t be welcome back at Leeds after seemingly showing he wanted to stay, only to turn his back on Daniel Farke.

He isn’t even performing well enough for us to have changed our minds on him either, because he’s shipping goals left and right for a mid-table side.

If we can break even on the £10million that we paid for him, then it would be good business for us in 2024.
