Canada star eyed

Leeds are being linked with a move for Club Brugge winger Tajon Buchanan. Italian news outlet CalcioMercato claim the Yorkshire club are ‘in the lead’ ahead of other European clubs such as Inter Milan for his signature at the end of this season.

The 24-year-old, who is from Ontario, represented Canada at the World Cup earlier this winter and caught the eye in Qatar. He started out in MLS at New England Revolution before landing a move to Belgium in 2021 and he has since scored two goals in 37 games in all competitions.

Winger expected to leave

Voetbal Nieuws claim Leeds-linked winger Noa Lang is expected to leave Club Brugge this summer. The 23-year-old has stayed put in the Belgian Pro League this term despite speculation over his long-term future.

He was on the books at Ajax from 2013 to 2017 as a youngster before heading out the exit door for a new challenge. He has since become a key player at the Jan Breydel Stadium and has fired 33 goals in 110 outings, seven of which have come in this campaign and his current club are facing a battle to keep him.
