The potential deal for Sergi Canos could well have hit a very early stumbling block according to reports. As I said in the article last night Leeds are keen on the winger by the sounds of things but Brentford seem to have the edge in the running for the ex-Barcelona and Liverpool youth player.

There are a couple of reasons for this. Scott Hogan is on the brink of a move to the Premier League with the latest fee said to be around £12.5 million, West Ham the club buying. That in itself is mad if you ask me, I rate Hogan at Championship level, maybe in the top three or four in the football league for strikers but there is huge question marks over him stepping up to the Premier League…but I’m well off track. So the point to that was Brentford will have more than enough cash. They also want the player on a permanent deal and we want him on loan.

That last point is the major issue. We are looking at a loan deal and Norwich want money. In my mind there is no doubt Canos is worth taking a punt on at £2.5 million but we like to loan before we buy and it could cost us here. Brentford is also well known to Canos, the winger having spent last season on loan at the London club and having a very fruitful spell. Fingers crossed the meeting between Monk, Cellino and Radrizzani can produce a solution to any deals we are looking to do this month.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
