Leeds United already have three big transfers in the bag with Roberto Moreno, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente at the club. A similar big-money move for Bayern Munich’s Michael Cuisance fell through after a failed medical. The Whites are said to be looking at alternatives and some, such as Football Insider, state that the Whites have returned to previous interest in Todd Cantwell.
Now Football Insider’s Veysey, referencing a ‘recruitment source’ writes that Leeds United are “back in” for youngster Cantwell as they look to beat the closing of Monday’s transfer window deadline.
Leeds have already entered a bid of £15m, supposedly. Their return comes with Veysey stating that the Canaries value academy product Cantwell in the £15m-£20m bracket. Veysey writes that “discussions are set to continue between the two clubs” as the ticking of the transfer clock hastens towards the current window closing.
Perhaps the biggest sign that this is happening is Norwich’s decision in regard to today’s game against Derby County. The Canaries recalled Emiliano Buendia but there was no recall for Cantwell.
That alone is strange, bearing in mind that Daniel Farke had left both Buendia and Cantwell out last week, citing a lack of focus from them as transfer rumours continue to swirl around the pair. Buendia coming back would seem to indicate a refocus by the Spaniard but Cantwell was still missing.
