Leeds reach ‘verbal agreement’ with Daniel Farke

Leeds are close to bringing in their next permanent manager after talks with Daniel Farke have reached new stages. According to Sky Sports Germany reporter Marlon Irlbacher, the two parties have reached a ‘verbal agreement about working together for the coming season.’

A further update from Football Insider also reports that Leeds ‘are confident’ of bringing Farke to Elland Road as early as next week. Talks are said to be in the ‘advanced stage’ with the 46-year-old, who was last in England during his tenure with Norwich City. Farke spent four years with the Canaries and helped them gain promotion into the Premier League in 2019.

Exit links for two Leeds stars

One of the main concerns for Leeds since their relegation will be over how many players could be leaving the club this summer. Naturally, plenty of exit links have surfaced as top players hope to return to top flight football. A couple of the latest involve Robin Koch, who has just 12 months left on his current contract, and the highly sought-after Tyler Adams.

According to Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Napoli are eyeing up Koch as a replacement for the outgoing Kim Min-Jae this window. The Daily Mail also claim that West Ham have set their sights on Adams as a potential suitor to fill the hole left by Declan Rice as he is on the verge of signing for Arsenal.
