Now this story is a little bit of a tenuous link, but don’t worry we’ll get you there.

Aden Flint is reportedly on the verge of signing for fellow Championship side Cardiff City. Now I know what you’re thinking. What’s this got to do with Leeds?

With Pontus Jansson leaving a pretty big hole in the Leeds United defence, it seems as though Leeds fans aren’t going to be happy until they see someone brought in to fill it. Especially if there are players passing them by who they either wanted or had a reasonable chance of getting.

Flint was reportedly a Leeds target a few seasons ago when he was still at Bristol City, and that’s potentially why Whites fans were annoyed that they didn’t pull the trigger and make a move for him this summer. Once again they used this opportunity to turn on the board, this time for not showing enough ambition.

Although as some people pointed out, a 6’5 lump of a centre back isn’t exactly the kind of player that would fit into the current Leeds system, so maybe it’s best they left him alone after all.
