Leeds United could be given yet another shot at signing Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez as his agent has revealed he will be allowed to move in January.

The midfielder was heavily linked with a move away from the Serie A side throughout the summer, with several clubs all keen on his signature.

Leeds were thought to be particularly interested in him, with barely a day going by in which they weren’t linked in some capacity at one point.

Indeed, in June, it was stated that they were ‘very close’ to getting the deal over the line, and it was stated they weremore and more determined’ to get their man.

Ultimately that never happened, with it explained in Italy that there had been a breakdown in negotiations as Cagliari demanded as much as they could for one of their key players.

Nandez ended up staying in Italy, much to the consternation of the player and his agent, who clearly wanted to secure a move out of Cagliari at least.

It’s something they’re likely to try and resolve come January, and his agent has confirmed there’s an agreement in place to make it happen, which is likely to interest Leeds.

“Cagliari? Giulini has promised the player and me to do everything possible so that he leaves in the January market,” he told Calcio Napoli 24.

“Nandez wants to win something; he wants to play in the Champions League. The president has given us his word, Nandez has been the most expensive player in Cagliari’s history, but we know the crisis there has been.

“Goodbye on loan or outright? I think he will sell him at a lower price than the one requested, there is a 36 million clause, but the president spoke yesterday with Nandez and told him that he will lower the price and let him leave.”
