Leeds United have tabled a bid to sign Guingamp midfielder Yannis Salibur, according to claims in the French media. The 25-year-old only joined the Ligue 1 side last summer, and was a regular in the team.
French newspaper L’Equipe have reported this morning that Leeds United have come in with a bid for Salibur as they look to strengthen their squad for next season.
Leeds United’s new manager Garry Monk has already brought in Marcus Antonsson from Swedish side Kalmar, and more players are likely to arrive at the club in this transfer window. Salibur is contracted to Guingamp until June 2018.
However, Leeds United will need to convince Salibur to join them because as it stands the Frenchman could be unwilling to drop down to the Championship, following his first season in the French top flight.
Salibur came through the Lille youth system, and even though he signed a senior contract with the French side he never made an appearance. The midfielder had to drop down from Ligue 1 to re-build his career before getting his move to Guingamp last year.
