Back in April, we covered claims from Belgium that Huddersfield Town and Southampton were keen on signing Anthony Limbombe from Club Brugge.
Leeds United had been previously interested in the player and there was a time it was thought the attacker was close to a move to Elland Road, but a fee couldn’t be agreed.
In April, the claims stated a deal would be valued at €12-15m and Limbombe wasn’t very keen on the Premier League clubs because he didn’t want to join a side who may be battling relegation. A Bundesliga move was the preference.
A week ago it was reported that Limbombe had been house-hunting in Leeds, but not because a move to the Championship club was back on. That’s where he planned to live after moving to Huddersfield, according to De Standaard.
Huddersfield’s first offer of €8m had been ‘laughed at’, but the Terriers then returned with a better offer and it was again stated a deal could be done at €12-15m.
Thursday’s edition of Het Belang van Limburg reports Limbombe is ‘almost gone’ from Club Brugge and will be signing for Huddersfield Town.
The transfer fee agreed on is €12m and there’s no mention of any further bonuses.
