In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Elland Road.

Nubel blow

Leeds may well be set to miss out on reported goalkeeping target Alex Nubel. That’s according to Florian Plettenberg, who says the goalkeeper could well be heading to Stuttgart after a ‘secret meeting’ with the club.

Plettenberg wrote on Twitter: “Secret meeting! Alexander Nübel was on site in Stuttgart yesterday to meet the people in charge: Wehrle, Wohlgemuth, Hoeneß, Krebs. VfB pushing for a loan with an option to buy.

“He’s the desired No. 1 for manager Hoeneß. @LUFC still in but there’s no official offer yet. Bayern prefers to sell Nübel, but Stuttgart with very good chances now. “

Farke fights to keep star

While it may be a long shot, Farke is said to be fighting to keep Tyler Adams at the club this summer despite there being interest from elsewhere.

“Compared to others, Tyler Adams was definitely more open to the Leeds project and the challenge of trying to get them back into the Premier League first time,” Ben Jacobs told GiveMeSport.

“But there is, of course, interest and uncertainty over his future. I think that Leeds are fighting to retain him. He is recovering from injury as well, which is probably why it’s been a bit more of a delayed clarity over his future.”
