FC Twente CEO Erik Velderman has confirmed they can’t spend the transfer money they’ve received for Mateusz Klich and Kamohelo Mokotjo, due to ongoing problems with the Dutch tax authorities. Klich last month signed for Leeds United, whilst Mokotjo joined Brentford this week.
Soccer News have reported on comments made by Velderman when he was quizzed about spending the money Twente have received from Leeds United and Brentford: “We are in discussions with the tax authorities, but until there is a final assessment, we can’t go ahead with any large investments.”
Twente received €1.2m after the Klich deal with Leeds United, but due to underpayments on past transfers they are now in talks with the tax authorities to solve the mater.
The Poland international was one of Leeds United’s first major signings this summer, after the midfielder joined the Championship side on a three year deal. The 27 year old has since been joined by Caleb Ekuban, Ezgjan Alioski, Samu Saiz, and Felix Wiedwald.
Leeds United have shown their intent in this transfer window, and will be looking for promotion to the Premier League next season.
