Before the late arrival of Dan James on deadline day, it was looking to be a frustrating transfer window for Leeds. This is due to targets such as Lewis O’Brien being unavailable for Leeds’ valuation.
Huddersfield Town chairman Phil Hodgkinson revealed in an interview with BBC Sport that Leeds bid £13 million for the midfielder, before having the offer rejected. “The fourth offer we rejected was for £13 million.”
So not only did Leeds offer £13 million for O’Brien, but they actually bid 4 times for the 22-year-old. It would appear Leeds were very serious about bringing O’Brien to the club, so it’s a shame they couldn’t get this one over the line.
