Victor Orta, Leeds United’s transfer chief, is eyeing a fourth summer move after a £5 million bid was turned down.

Leeds United are in their second season in the Premier League, with Marcelo Bielsa at the helm.

Leeds United are hoping to spend more money this summer after spending £25 million in the previous window.

The Whites splashed out £95 million last summer, with £79 million of that going to just four players: Rodrigo, Raphinha, Diego Llorente, and Helder Costa, as the Yorkshire club finished in the top half of the Premier League for the first time.

Players are beginning to be drawn to the club under Argentina-born manager Bielsa after finishing tenth and delighting the entire Premier League with their adventurous gung-ho tactics.

And, after bringing in Jack Harrison, Junior Firpo, and Kristoffer Klaesson for a combined sum of £27 million this window, there is still plenty of capacity at Elland Road for future additions.

Leeds are seeking for an attacker to compete with the free-scoring front line, and have been connected with Matheus Cunha throughout the most of the window.

If speculations are to be believed, their next signing will be a long-term commitment, with teenage Sheffield United attacker Daniel Jebbison being connected.

After a successful trial, Jebbison, who emigrated in England from Canada at the age of 14, joined the Blades at Bramall Lane in 2018.

The teenager was largely unknown until May 2021, when he made his debut for the Blades, who had already been demoted.

And by scoring against Everton, he made history by being the youngest player in Premier League history to score on their debut.

Jebbison is expected to move to a bigger club this summer after yet to play in the Championship for the Blades.

And the fact that Everton’s £5 million bid for the Canadian was rejected has alerted other teams to his potential availability.

Despite earning £30 million for keeper Aaron Ramsdale this week, TEAMtalk reports that Leeds are open to selling Jebbison to improve his squad.

Everton’s £5 million deal was turned down, although Leeds, Aston Villa, and Brentford are all interested.

Leeds would have probably the best young attacking team in the country if they signed him, with strikers Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood also impressing for the junior side last season, netting 23 goals in 34 games.

Sheffield United have had a terrible start to life in the Championship, with only one point to show for it. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
