Does West Brom's Nabi sale to Peterborough mean Leeds United's Maddison signing is imminent?

Elland Road

With Leeds hovering, have Peterborough signed Marcus Maddison's replacement in Adil Nabi?

Into the final fortnight of the transfer window, deals are beginning to happen and activity is speeding up.

Leeds fans are certainly hoping that the club can make good on their pledge to reinvest the Sam Byram money, with assistant coach Paul Raynor telling the Yorkshire Evening Post yesterday the club aim to have new faces in over the next 48 hours.

One of the players they have made an approach for is Peterborough United attacker Marcus Maddison.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony confirmed via Twitter yesterday that the club had enquired after the 22-year-old.

Just hours later Peterborough clinched a deal to sign Adil Nabi from West Brom, also an attacking midfield player, with SkySports reporting the transfer.

Nabi, 22, was West Brom's young player of the year last season and his addition is a coup for Peterborough, and makes it more likely Leeds could get their man.

Peterborough cashed in Conor Washington this week, selling the striker to QPR, and the Peterborough Telegraph reported that more exits are expected, with Maddison one of the players named in the report, which was published prior to MacAnthony's confirmation of Leeds' contact.

Maddison has played in 25 games this season in all competitions, scoring seven goals and providing seven assists.

Leeds however may not end up being the lucky recipients of the Nabi deal. The Sun reported this week that Crystal Palace have an interest in attacking midfielder Erhun Oztumer, and it is highly unlikely Peterborough would allow both players to leave.
