Birmingham Live reports that Leeds United have bid for Birmingham City goalkeeper David Stockdale. However, that offer will not be accepted as it has fallen below their valuation. It remains to be seen if they will return with an improved offer.
It was revealed last month that Garry Monk was happy for Stockdale to depart the club. He has only been with the Blues for one season after previously spending a few seasons at Brighton & Hove Albion. Leeds are in the hunt for a new goalkeeper, but the change of head coach may possibly lead to a change of target.
Marcelo Bielsa of course is now in the hot seat at Elland Road and will have his own ideas as to who he wants to sign. Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth has been one name to be heavily linked. Cameron Carter-Vickers, also of Spurs, has been linked with a loan switch as well. He ended last season in the Championship on loan at Ipswich Town.
Regarding Stockdale, he is still available for transfer, but clearly an improved offer is required by price in order to prize him away. He still has a further two years remaining on his existing contract at St Andrews.
The Yorkshire Evening Post today stated that Stockdale remain keen on the player, but they are ‘a distance apart’ is relation to agreeing personal terms.
Elsewhere, current goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald is closing in on a move back to Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt, whilst Bailey Peacock-Farrell has been touted with a transfer into the Premier League as well.
