Leverkusen star rejects move to Leeds United

According to Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports Germany, Nadiem Amiri has rejected a move to Leeds United.

Four days ago, it was reported that the midfielder had reached personal terms with French side Marseille, with Leverkusen demanding a €7million fee. Negotiations have been going on this week, when Leeds United entered the race.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Leeds United sent a formal bid for the midfielder on Wednesday, after Marseille had started negotiations.

The Whites offered the player a four year deal and were willing to meet Leverkusen’s demands of €7million as opposed to Marseille who were negotiating for a lower fee.

Daniel Farke is reportedly a big fan of the player, and is part of the reason an offer was submitted quickly.

As of this morning, Florian Plettenberg has reported that Amiri has chosen to join Marseille even though the french club are yet to agree on a fee with Bayer Leverkusen.

The 26-year old is in the final year of his contract and it is believed Leverkusen would be glad to get a fee for him this summer instead of losing him on a free.

Amiri was part of a host of attacking targets for Leeds United, including Swansea City striker Joel Piroe and Genk winger Joseph Paintsil.

The German midfielder has been capped by Germany from youth level to senior level, having won the UEFA European U21 Championship in 2017. He was also part of the German team that featured at the 2020 Olympics.

Leeds will be away to Ipswich Town this weekend as the club push to sign reinforcements before the end of the transfer window.
