Leeds United have agreed personal terms with Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie according to Fabrizio Romano.
This update comes amid reports linking McKennie with a move to Leeds which emerged yesterday [24 January].
The Whites are believed to be interested in bolstering their midfield before the January transfer window closes next week after they terminated Mateusz Klich’s contract so he could join MLS side DC United.
After being linked several times with Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi it now seems that the Yorkshire club have their sights firmly set on McKennie.
As per Romano’s tweet, personal terms have been agreed with the American and it is now down to Leeds and Juventus to negotiate a transfer fee.
Joining Leeds would see McKennie link up with countrymen Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams and Jesse Marsch – as the American contingent at Elland Road continues to grow.
Most Leeds fans will be incredibly happy with the business that their club has done in the window so far, signing defender Max Wober from RB Salzburg and breaking their club record transfer fee by bringing in forward Georginio Rutter from Hoffenheim.
To get McKennie now would just be icing on the cake, with the American appearing to be an extremely astute signing.
It’s also great to see the club not messing around with last-minute transfers this time in a trading period where they have often floundered in the past.
If this move is to happen, then they need to get it done sooner rather than later. January seems to be shaping up to be an exciting time to be a Whites supporter, for once.
