The Matej Vydra situation seemed to come to an end over the weekend and not in the way we would have liked.

It appeared last week that we were finally going to get the Czech with reports saying a fee had been agreed and that we were edging close to a deal.

However, personal terms were the problem earlier this summer and so they proved again this time around.

Indeed, Sky Sports has reported that the club and the player could not reach an agreement and so, whilst Derby were happy to let him go, no move is going to happen.

The Verdict

Of course, you’d never actually be surprised if we ended up still signing the player but I do think that this time the ship has sailed.

That’s twice personal terms have caused an issue and so for me he is no longer worth the hassle with little time left in this window.

  • I reckon we may have dodged a bullet here. It was only the money he was interested in so no need to put all in for the team. Just do enough to keep getting the cheque. And who’s to say he will have another season like last. His previous one was pretty crap if I remember correctly
    I also reckon he is so far up his own arse he won’t see the ball coming anyway

  • Why didn’t he just say at the very start no way am u going to a mid table side instead of dragging it out & asking for wages he must’ve known we’d never pay what a plonker

    • He didn’t say that from the start as it’s lies and he now trying to save face because he has to go back to Derby where he’s not wanted.
      He’s been waiting for a big perm move but he needs to realise he’s only a championship player at best I just hope now we finish above them, and have the last laugh.

  • Simple greedy what will be will be and at the end of the day he will not play for a bigger club than Leeds United that is fact onwards and upwards Patrick Bamford welcome to Elland Road

  • Fact is, if you strip away his penalties last season, he scored as many as Roofe did when mostly playing on the the wing! How much does that make Roofe worth?

  • I reckon that vydra was seen in Leeds to excite people but realy trying a way to get even more money.
    I think he has shot himself in the foot, no one else will buy him and he wont get a game for Derby.
    His value will soon go down. WELL DONE AGENT LOL

  • i still think we will sign him like everybody at derby now no that they do not want him he will come around to leeds way of thinking and lower his wage demands he be there as number nine against stoke city i bet anybody any money
