According to German outlet Kicker, Leverkusen midfielder Nadiem Amiri is now willing to join Leeds United in another twist to the transfer.

Last week, it was reported that the midfielder had reached personal terms with French side Marseille, with Leverkusen demanding a €7million fee. Leeds also reportedly submitted a fee closer to €6-7million which gave them the greenlight to sort out personal terms with the player. However, a few days later, the player had seemingly changed his mind about moving to Elland Road. The report from Germany said the choice between Marseille and Leeds United was down to the player, as both clubs were close to agreeing terms with Leverkusen.

The deal eventually hit a snag as Amiri had not given a direct answer as to whether he would be willing to move to England. Now, Kicker is reporting that the midfielder has changed his mind. Kicker reports that even though the player had called off the transfer, he is now ‘reconsidering’ the move. The report says Amiri is warming to the idea of joining Daniel Farke at Elland Road.

According to Kicker, the midfielder had concerns about the Whites’ start to the season, and since he doesn’t want to spend more than a year in the Championship. However, he has now changed his mind as the move offers him a ‘sporting and financial opportunity’. That, coupled with the fact that he currently has no place in the Bayer Leverkusen team, would only make it more difficult to get a big transfer next summer.

Leeds would pay around €6million, including bonuses, with the player signing a four-year deal.
