Leeds readying fresh swoop for Huddersfield star29 May 2022
Leeds United are ready to reignite their pursuit of Huddersfield Town star Lewis O’Brien, according to reports.
For those not aware, highly-regarded midfielder O’Brien was hotly tipped for an Elland Road switch throughout last summer’s transfer window.
This came with Marcelo Bielsa understood to be a keen admirer of the 23-year-old’s talents, and Leeds having long been sorely lacking in depth in the middle of the park.
In the end, a deal, evidently, could not be found, as the powers that be at Huddersfield were urged not to cave amid a concerted push on the part of their Yorkshire rivals.
As per a report from The Sun, however, the latest signals stemming from Elland Road point towards Leeds readying a renewed offer for O’Brien.
New Whites boss Jesse Marsch has too been left impressed by the Englishman’s form at Kirklees Stadium, with a £10 million bid, in turn, said to be in the pipeline.
One potential issue for Leeds, however, comes in the form of Huddersfield’s ongoing push for a return to the Premier League.
The Terriers are actually locked in action with Nottingham Forest at present, in the knowledge that a victory would see them guaranteed of a spot in England’s top-flight for the 2022/23 campaign.
And, should Carlos Corberan’s troops go on to emerge triumphant, then O’Brien is in line for a new contract, featuring a considerably higher release clause.
