Junior Firpo linked with move to Real Sociedad

Leeds United left-back Junior Firpo's time at Elland Road has been a mixed bag, to say the least. It could be coming to an end very soon - he has been linked with a move to Real Sociedad in La Liga.

This is according to a report from Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo. With Firpo's contract set to expire in the summer of 2025, it makes sense to cash in on his services sooner, rather than later - the Whites will be hoping to recoup some of the £13 million fee they paid for him in 2021.

Don Goodman praises 'massive' win over Preston

Leeds picked up a massive victory over Preston at the weekend, as Joel Piroe scored a penalty at the death - pundit Don Goodman has had plenty of nice things to say about the result.

Speaking to MOT Leeds News, Goodman said: "It was a massive moment for [Leeds]. You look at Leicester, who have still got a cushion, plus Southampton’s unbeaten run. We know Leeds’ ambition has to be to get into the top two.

"So for them to get those extra two points through that penalty in added time was absolutely massive. They’ve been so good at Elland Road. It would have been a real blow to drop two points. It’s just a quest from Leeds to find this consistency, which they are capable of."
