Leeds close to agreeing deal with 6ft 6in beast who starred at the World Cup

Posted by

Leeds United are close to signing Stoke City defender Harry Souttar before the end of the January transfer window.

That is according to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who stated on Sky Sports News that the Australian international is nearing a move to Elland Road but the deal is not done yet.

It has been an excellent window for the Whites so far, with Georginio Rutter arriving in a club-record deal and Max Wober being recruited to bolster Jesse Marsch’s defence.

Souttar will add to strengthening this area of the pitch for Leeds and fans of the Yorkshire club will be hoping the 24-year-old can match his performances from the World Cup.

The Australian international was one of the best centre-backs at the tournament in Qatar and that is likely the main factor in him getting this big move to Leeds.

  1. Let’s hope we get him for a reasonable price as many of the world Cup stars are now overpriced deffo need a defender

      1. Hardly cheap at £35M for an injury prone defender in an ordinary Championship side who had a good WC

    1. Have him and Wober at CB, and Struijk at LB. Wober has shown already he has leadership qualities, he’s the defender we’ve had that can actually defend since Ben White and although he can play in many positions, Centre Back is his best position.
      We STILL need a LB, Struijk to me is a squad player at best!
