Leeds United are keen on signing Olympiakos midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe on loan for next season, according to LeedsLive.

The Championship side are eager to bolster their squad over the summer and see the former Norwich City midfielder as a potential signing.

Paul Heckingbottom will be looking to add some signings to his newly inherited side to help put his own stamp on Leeds. They have been linked with moves for Barnsley’s Andy Yiadom, Joe Williams and Oli McBurnie (last two on loan from Everton and Swansea City respectively), but Odjidja-Ofoe is a new one.

The 29-year-old signed for Norwich City in 2014 and played for them for two seasons. However, he struggled to nail down a first-team spot at Carrow Road and was sent out on loan to Rotherham United in September 2015.

Odjidja-Ofoe, who is a Belgium international with 6 caps for his country, started his career at Anderlecht but joined Hamburg as a youngster in 2008. He then had spells at Club Brugge, Norwich and Rotherham before he was signed by Polish giants Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee in August 2016.

He spent one season in Poland and scored 5 goals in 42 games. He was then snapped by Olmpiakos for €2.5 million last summer. He has played for the Greek side in the Champions League this season.

Odjidja-Ofoe’s next career move could be a loan spell to Leeds United and would he grasp his second chance in English football?
