It was a good Championship round for Leeds United, with Sheffield United faltering and Marcelo Bielsa’s side moving three points clear of their Yorkshire rivals.
With games running out, everything is more pressured right now and that elusive promotion, the stuff of dreams for years, is genuinely coming into view.
The club’s summer budget will depend on which division they’re in, and around £1m is looking assured from Caleb Ekuban.
Sent on loan to Trabzonspor this season, the forward has been impressing both on and off the pitch, and his days as a Leeds United player look numbered.
Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, the player’s agent Graziano Battistini explained: “He is doing very well at Trabzonspor, he has a great chance of being able to play the African Cup, he has an important potential and is demonstrating it. Trabzonspor will buy him from Leeds, he’s footballer ready for big stages. His moment is coming.”
There may well be some regret at Leeds over the deal, especially if the Turkish club then sell him for €10m+, as has been rumoured. However, had Ekuban stayed at Leeds then this progress may not have been possible, it’ll just be hoped Victor Orta secured some sort of sell-on percentage as part of the buying clause.
