Sorensen can’t agree Leeds terms, deal could be off

Juventus defender Frederik Sorensen may not be headed to Leeds United after all with contract talks hitting a brick wall.

Frederik Sorensen looked to be a done deal for Leeds United, but reports from Italy suggest that talks over personal terms have broken down.

The 22-year-old, who can play as a right-back or a centre-back, has been in talks with Leeds for several days after a deal with the Italian champions was agreed.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino confirmed that the terms of the deal would see Sorensen join on loan for next season for a fee of £500,000 with the option to make the deal permanent for around £3.5 million next summer.

But Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Sorensen hasn't been impressed by the wages Leeds have offered him and is ready to walk away.

It is being suggested that the lack of an agreement could open the door for another of Sorensen's suitors to step in.

Serie A sides Genoa and Verona are believed to be interested and could make contact to try and wrestle the Dane away from Leeds.

Sorensen is seen as a highly promising prospect for the future having already made a number of appearances in Serie A for Juventus and Bologna.

Leeds will be disappointed to miss out if they can't turn talks around, but Sorensen's salary at Juventus may be beyond the Championship side's reach.
