Leeds United and Fulham haggling over fee for Matt Smith, deal is "50-50"

Reports from journalists suggest another Leeds striker could be headed to west London this summer.

Matt Smith's move from Leeds United to Fulham looks like it could go ahead this Deadline Day.

That's according to reports from various journalists, who suggest both clubs are in talks about a deal.

Leeds, of course, have already sold Ross McCormack to Fulham this summer - for a reported fee of £11 million, although some suggestions are that the initial fee was closer to £5-6m.

Now, though, Smith could also be in his way, as the Cottagers look to bring the 25-year-old to west London to bolster their front line.

Firstly, Sun journalist Alan Nixon says both clubs are haggling over a fee, with the original offer being £500,000.

Yesterday, reports suggested a fee was closer to £1.4 million.

A deal could well go through, however, as Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post says talks are "50-50" at the moment.

Fulham have struggled for goals so far this season and have only amassed one point in the Championship.

Leeds have also suffered an indifferent start to their campaign but have, at least, won two out of their five league games so far.
