Two key passes: How Leeds linked Anthony Limbombe performed for NEC last night

Leeds linked Anthony Limbombe was in action for NEC Nimegen last night.

Leeds United were linked last night with a potential deal to sign NEC Nijmegen winger Anthony Limbombe.

Fox Sports Netherlands reported the Whites had seen a £1.4 million offer turned down for the 21-year-old Belgian.

Limbombe was in action for Nijmegen last night, helping the newly promoted Dutch side to a 1-0 win over Excelsior.

He was bright throughout the contest, contributing in both attack and defence. Here is a look at his key statistics from the match.

- Two chances created - Matched only by one other NEC Nijmegen player.

- 83% Passing accuracy.

- One shot on target from two attempts.

- 52 Touches. The second highest of any attacking player.

- 11 Crosses attempted, 3 accurate.

- Four clearances made.

Limbombe was heavily involved in Nijmegen's attacking play, even if he could not provide a cutting edge himself.

He scored 16 times and provided 11 assists last season, but this is his first season attempting to make an impact in the Eredivisie.

With Stuart Dallas already signed, Limbombe would not be under pressure to produce at Leeds right away, but the club could surely benefit from his direct style. Firstly however a financial agreement with the Dutch side must be found.
