Definitive verdict emerges in potential Leeds United pursuit of Premier League player

  • by

It seems Leeds United will not be making a move to sign Norwich City attacking midfielder Todd Cantwell this month.

That’s after the Daily Mirror journalist David Anderson, reported that the 23-year-old is not a target for the Whites during the current transfer window.

With Leeds having been linked with the attacker in the past, it seems as though the opportunity to sign Cantwell may now have emerged this month.

Cantwell has seemingly fallen out of favour at Norwich with both Daniel Farke and Dean Smith this season, leading to reports that Norwich have talked to other clubs about a sale.

Subsequent reports have claimed that Leeds are among the clubs still monitoring the situation, although it now appears that that may not be the case.

According to this latest update, the Elland Road club have not renewed their interest in Cantwell this month, despite their previous interest in the attacker.

As a result, Leeds are not said to be targeting the attacking midfielder during the current window, and it remains to be seen if any other club will make a move for him in the coming weeks.

This may not be the worst stance for Leeds to take in fairness.

Although Cantwell has shown potential in the top-flight in the past, he has yet to really produce that on a consistent basis, certainly this season.

As a result, you question whether he could make the required impact at Elland Road, particularly when there appear to have been issues with both Farke and Smith at Norwich this season.

With that in mind, you feel it does make sense for Leeds to try and bring other targets to the club before the window closes at the end of the month.
