Ibai Gomez and Leeds United is a transfer story that isn’t going to go away soon, and given the player’s form that’s quite exciting for Leeds United fans.
Riding high in La Liga with Alaves and considered a big part of the club’s good run of results, Gomez is in the fortunate position that his contract expires in June. If there was ever a good time to hit a purple patch then it’s when your deal is ending.
AS cover what others have and say Gomez is seriously interesting his former club Athletic Club Bilbao, with Leeds United also brought into the picture.
With Leeds being a Championship club and some big Spanish sides sniffing around, the Whites may usually find themselves edged to one side. The difference here is, at least partly, Marcelo Bielsa.
Last week Sport Witness was informed Gomez certainly doesn’t rule out a move to Leeds, impressed by the club’s status and history, and the prospect of playing for Bielsa is attractive.
AS state Gomez will ‘weigh up everything’ before deciding whether to take up the Leeds option and move in January, let his contract run down, or sign a renewal with Alaves.
