According to The Athletic, Leeds United would be “happy” to keep Rodrigo Moreno at the club this season.

The 32-year old has been subject to interest from Spain earlier this summer. Real Madrid were interested in signing him as a backup forward before going in for Joselu. Sevilla were also in talks with Leeds over a possible transfer, but no deal has been reached so far.

Rodrigo has a year left on his current deal at Elland Road, and Phil Hay reports that the club would like to retain the services of the forward. The last word from Rodrigo’s representatives is that nothing has been confirmed and the player is looking forward to honouring his current deal.

Hay reveals that Leeds are keen on keeping the Spaniard, but accept that he may be tempted with better offers as Everton, Fulham and Qatari side Al-Rayyan are showing interest.
