Update on the future of ex Leeds United loanee Brian Montenegro, offer on the table from Paraguayan club

Former Leeds United loanee Brian Montenegro is wanted in Paraguay.

Former Leeds United loanee Brian Montenegro appears unlikely to return to the club for 2015/16.

The Uruguayan forward was a prolific goalscorer for the under-21 side but his only real chance for the first team came in a FA Cup defeat to Sunderland.

Leeds have so far shown no interest in bringing him back to the club from Uruguayan side Nacional, and now the 22-year-old has a fresh offer on the table.

Paraguayan outlet Entorno Inteligente report Brian Montenegro is wanted by top flight side Cerro Porteno.

The club finished fourth last season, and they have made an offer to pay a small fee to take Montenegro on loan for the 2015/16 campaign.

It is reported that Montenegro had been negotiating with Brazilian side Guarani, but a deal to stay in Paraguay is more likely.

The biggest obstacle is the fact it is alleged by Entorno Inteligente that Montenegro is part-owned by a third party group of businessman, whose intention it is for the attacker to clinch a deal in European football.

Montenegro is a former Paraguay under-20 international, and had a short spell on loan with West Ham in 2011/12.
