Leeds United’s pursuit of Strømsgodset forward Abdul-Basit Agouda has being given a boost after the player was again left out of the Norwegian side’s match day squad.
The 18 year old recently went on record to say he’s unhappy about the lack of chances he’s been getting this season, and subsequently won’t extend his contract with Strømsgodset.
Agouda was again not involved in his side’s clash with SK Brann on Sunday, and it seems likely he’s played his last game for the Eliteserien club.
Strømsgodset will conclude their domestic season this weekend when they take on Aalesunds FK, and it’s unlikely he’ll be involved due to his side being in the mix for a Europa League place.
The youngster’s contract expires at the end of December, and clubs like Leeds United are looking to take advantage of his situation.
Earlier this month we covered reports that Leeds United travelled to Finland to watch Agouda play for Norway’s U18s. The youngster scored in his side’s 4-0 victory over Finland.
It’s been claimed Agouda has turned down two contract proposals from his club, and it seems the Leeds United target will be leaving in the next window.
If his contract situation with Strømsgodset doesn’t change in the next few weeks, Leeds United will be able to sign the player as a free agent, just paying training compensation.
