Sturm Graz midfielder James Jeggo has told the Australian media he could stay with the Austrian club, but has being offered other opportunities elsewhere.
Jeggo has been linked with a move to Leeds United in recent months, and the Championship side could have the opportunity to land him on a free transfer this summer.
Speaking to The World Game, Jeggo was asked about his future with Sturm Graz: “I’m at that age now. I have an offer from Graz, and it’s somewhere I’m very happy. I’ve thought long and hard about staying and that may still be the case.”
“But there are other opportunities that are happening at the moment, and a few things I’m working through.”
In November, we covered reports that Leeds United are monitoring the situation with Jeggo, with his club conceding the player could leave Sturm Graz.
At the time the central midfielder hadn’t been offered a contract extension by the Austrian club, even though several of his teammates had.
Leeds United could now speak to Jeggo with regards to a pre-contract agreement, and it remains to seen if they are one of the clubs that have made an offer to the player.
It’s thought there are four clubs in the race to sign the central midfielder, and that he may need to move to enhance his chances with the Australian national team.
Jeggo was recently omitted for the Bert van Marwijk’s pre-World Cup squad.
