Leeds United finally confirm midfielder capture – fee agreed

In news long-expected, Leeds United have finally confirmed the capture of Japan international midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi from J1 League side Gamba Osaka.

At some point soon, Leeds United fans will catch a brief glimpse of Japan international Yosuke Ideguchi before he is whisked off abroad to ‘serve his apprenticeship.’ This ‘shuffling out abroad’ is needed for the Blue Samurai rising star as he will not meet current playing quota qualification to meet the criteria for a work permit.

The signing of Blue Samurai star Ideguchi had been mooted since The72 first wrote about the possibility of Gamba Osaka star Ideguchi joining Leeds United back on September 10. We cited a Facebook Live chat with Leeds United Director of Football Victor Orta who mentioned at the time that the club had a big surprise for fans.

Orta’s replied to a question asked by a Leeds fan, and was more than clear in what he said with the Spaniard stating: “…perhaps he arrived Pawel Cibicki of Malmö in the Sweden league and we are near to sign a big surprise from Asia.”

However, the three months of conjecture have now been formalised with Leeds United announcing that a fee has been agreed for Ideguchi on the club’s official website earlier today.

The club’s announcement says that “a fee has been agreed with Gamba Osaka” and that Ideguchi will be seen at Elland Road next week for the usual medical “with a view to completing a permanent move to Elland Road.”
