Leeds United midfielder subject to “formal offer” – Marcelo Bielsa keen to offload

A report from Yahoo Japan has claimed that Leeds United have received a formal offer from Japanese J-League side Gamba Osaka for midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi, who looks set to leave the Championship club this summer.

It was reported by Football Insider last month that Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa would allow midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi to leave the club this summer. And now, it has been claimed that he is subject to an offer from Gamba Osaka.

Ideguchi joined Leeds United from Gamba Osaka back in 2017 and the Japanese outfit are reportedly keen to bring him back to the club this summer, where he played 96 times after emerging from the club’s youth academy. He has represented the Japan national team on 12 occasions, making his debut at the age of 20 in 2017.

Ideguchi has not played once during his time at Leeds United, first going on loan to Spanish side Cultural Leonesa, where he started just one game, making four substitute appearances. In summer 2018, he agreed on a loan move to German outfit Greuther Furth, where he played seven times before suffering a serious knee injury.

Ideguchi’s departure from Leeds United may not come as much of a surprise given his forgettable spell with the club, given the non-existent impact he has made during his time at Elland Road. Since joining Leeds in January of 2018 on a four-and-a-half-year deal, Ideguchi has played just 12 senior games of football – with none of them coming in a Leeds United shirt.

While Ideguchi has not had the chance to showcase himself to Leeds United fans since his arrival, Whites supporters will not be surprised to see the back of the midfielder this summer with Marcelo Bielsa keen to bring in some new faces ahead of another push for promotion to the Premier League.
