According to Sky Sports Germany and KICKER, any potential deal between Leeds United and Leverkusen midfielder Nadiem Amiri is off.
According to KICKER, Amiri flew to England on Monday for talks with the club and to see everything there. He initially had doubts over joining a side in the Championship, but reportedly changed his mind after Leeds beat Ipswich Town last weekend. According to Sky Sports Germany, the player and Leeds failed to agree on any cooperation and the deal is reportedly off.

Amiri and his camp left England yesterday without the midfielder undergoing a medical or indicating his intention to accept their offer. Leeds had negotiated a £5million fee with Bayer Leverkusen for Amiri last week according to The Athletic. However, all parties involved knew a potential move was always dependent on the German fully agreeing to move to the Championship.
Kicker reported that Amiri informed Leeds United officials during a face-to-face meeting in the afternoon that he does not wish to join the club.
The Whites have until Friday to sort out any remaining deals this summer. Leeds’ next league game is against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
