Midfielder latest

Leeds midfielder Glen Kamara has been linked with a move to Rennes over recent times. In this latest update, their Sporting Director Frederic Massara has refused to be drawn on the speculation.

He has said, as per a report by Get French Football News: “He is a Leeds player, a good player, definitely interesting, but of course, we are interested in lots of players, some of which have not yet been revealed and could arrive, even quickly.”

Kamara, who is 28-years-old, moved to Elland Road 12 months ago following the Whites’ relegation to the second tier. He has since made 42 appearances in all competitions, 37 of which have come in the league.

The former Arsenal man was on the books at Rangers from 2018 to 2023 and played 193 games for the Glasgow outfit, chipping in with nine goals.

Summerville update

According to TEAMtalk, Brighton and Hove Albion are ‘out of the running’ to sign Crysencio Summerville in this window. The Seagulls have cooled their pursuit of the Dutchman for the time being.

The attacker is a man in-demand right now and Leeds could face a battle to keep hold of him over the next couple of months. The likes of PSG, Liverpool and Chelsea have all been linked.

Summerville, who is 22-years-old, moved to England in 2020 from Feyenoord. He has since scored 25 goals in 89 games, 21 of which came in the last campaign.

Attacker to move on again

Toulouse have now agreed a few with MK Dons for former Whites player Max Dean, as per the MK Citizen. The 20-year-old is edging closer to a move to France.

He began his career with Leeds and rose up through their ranks before penning his first professional deal in 2020.

The forward was a regular for the Under-21’s but never made a first-team appearance.

MK Dons signed him in 2022 and he has fired 20 goals in 43 outings during his spell in Buckinghamshire.

The Dons missed out on promotion to League One last term after losing in the play-offs at the semi-final stage to eventual winners Crawley Town.

Ex-midfielder to leave

Alfie McCalmont is ‘poised’ to leave Carlisle United, the News & Star report. The Northern Ireland international, like Dean, progressed up through the different age groups at Thorp Arch.

The 24-year-old played four times for Leeds, as well as having loan stints at Oldham Athletic, Morecambe and the Cumbrians before the latter snapped him up permanently.

He still has a year left at Brunton Park but is set to head out the exit door in the near future. Paul Simpson’s side were relegated to League Two last term.
