You know that feeling of banging your head against a brick wall?

I sort of feel like that right now when it comes to Leeds United and the current transfer window. Just what is it going to take for us to finally get someone through the door? Because what we’re doing right now clearly isn’t enough.

So in our latest attempt to try and bring in a centre-forward to compete with Patrick Bamford, we appear to have hit a dead end. According to a report in The Yorkshire Evening Post, Southampton have turned down a third ‘loan with a view to buy’ offer for Che Adams, this time rejecting a ‘substantial loan fee’ with £20m set to go their way in the summer.

And by the looks of it, it isn’t just me that is getting frustrated with this news. Leeds United fans took to social media to discuss the matter, and they were left in one of two camps. Either annoyed at the club for wasting their time still pursuing a transfer that seems dead in the water, or by the fact that such an enormous fee still isn’t enough to entice the Saints to sell him on.

Would Adams have been worth a club-record fee?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Maybe it’s best if we just move on to another target?
