According to the Daily Mail, Leeds United have submitted a bid worth around £12m for Derby County striker Matej Vydra and the club are thought to be weighing up a deal which would see the striker leave the club in the coming days.
The Daily Mail has reported that people close to the Derby County are big fans of the West-Yorkshire club’s plans for future and it’s thought that the signature of Vydra could be integral in making those plans come to fruition.
Leeds United fans have been gripped by the Matej Vydra transfer saga during this transfer window in the hope that the club can convince last season’s Championship top-scorer to make a move to Elland Road for the upcoming season.
There has been a huge debate over whether Leeds United would move for Derby’s Vydra, Bournemouth’s Lewis Grabban and free agent Abel Hernandez over the last few weeks, but it appears that the speculation could be set to come to an end with Derby County under pressure to sell their striker to raise money for Frank Lampard to restructure his side ahead of this new season.
The £12m offer that Leeds United have made for Vydra would be the biggest transfer deal since the club signed Robbie Fowler in 2001 from Liverpool in a deal worth a similar amount of money.
Leeds United fans will be hoping and praying the club can sign Derby County’s star man in the coming days as a deal for Vydra would really stamp down Leeds United’s markers as promotion contenders rather than promotion hopefuls ahead of this upcoming season.
