One of the stranger, but definitely more exciting, transfer links for Leeds United concerns struggling Southampton striker Che Adams.

The 23-year-old had a good season in the 2018/19 campaign with Birmingham City and earned himself a £15million switch to St Mary’s Stadium last summer, but he hasn’t had a great half a season as he continues to adapt to the Premier League and he’s only made ten starts across all competitions, but more notably, he’s failed to find the back of the net even once.

Now he hasn’t suddenly turned into a bad player overnight and everyone is aware of what he can do in the second tier, and Athletic journalist Phil Hay, believes that Southampton are open to doing a deal for him this month – the only snag being their manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, still wants to keep him around.

The £1million loan fee is absolutely doable, the doubt for me (having already agreed to the obligation to buy Helder Costa) is whether we’d concede that point, as opposed to chasing a simple buy option.

As you can see by clicking the above Tweet, plenty of fans are on board with getting him in given what they remember of him from last season, but there’s the natural doubt on whether Andrea Radrizzani would let us stretch the finances that far.

I guess we’ll soon see.

Adams, It's A No Brainer Isn't It?

  • let’s get some business done in the next few days , let’s not repeat the debacle of last season when we missed out with daniel what’s his name from Swansea and ended up blowing our best chance in years of gaining promotion , we also need a central defender and get rid of cooper ( controversial I know but hes shit beradi is twice the player cops is so offload cops and bamford for a bargain price and go get Adam’s or gayle on loan with buyout clause in their contracts) if radz is reading this with his wallet super glued shut then he can go on a free transfer back to italy and take Kinnear and orta with him
