Report: Leeds make decision over Granddi Ngoyi's future, Bamba verdict imminent

Leeds have decided not to purchase midfielder Granddi Ngoyi, whilst defender Sol Bamba's future is now on the agenda.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Leeds United have decided not to sign midfielder Granddi Ngoyi permanently - whilst a decision over the future of defender Sol Bamba could arrive as early as this afternoon.

Ngoyi, 27, joined Leeds on loan from Palermo in January having slipped down the pecking order with the Italian club, only to endure a frustrating time in West Yorkshire.

The former Paris Saint-Germain defensive midfielder played just once for Leeds as he struggled to make an impact due to injuries and the form of other midfielders.

Now, Ngoyi's loan deal has expired and Leeds have been pressed into making a decision over whether to sign him permanently or not - and, according to TMW, Leeds have unsurprisingly decided not to purchase Ngoyi on a permanent deal, but the report does also state there is a chance Ngoyi could return to Elland Road on loan again.

That isn't the only piece of business Leeds are doing with Palermo, as it's also noted that the future of defender Sol Bamba is also up for discussion.

The 30-year-old centre back arrived alongside Ngoyi in January but conversely, the Ivorian was impressive in the Leeds backline - and Leeds can now make an attempt to sign the former Leicester man permanently.

As reported by TMW, Bamba is currently away on vacation but Leeds can exercise the right to purchase Bamba, with a decision expected imminently, possibly even this afternoon if the report is to be believed.
