Bold prediction: Leeds return for Wolves ace

Will Leeds United go back for Rajiv van la Parra?

It is deadline day and whether Leeds United will manage to do a deal at all is unclear.

Kyle Lafferty is an option - as he was from the moment the transfer window opened, but still the club have yet to strike a deal with Norwich.

A winger is another option, but Sheffield Wednesday are set to beat them to the signing of Aiden McGeady, report the Sheffield Star.

One player who can perform in both roles, out wide and up front, is a player who Leeds almost signed in the summer, Wolves ace Rajiv van la Parra.

The Express and Star reported last August that Leeds were making a move for him, and also wrote back in December that the Whites almost signed him on deadline day.

Van La Parra has since enjoyed a loan spell at Brighton in which he has proved his worth as a Championship player, with the 24-year-old winger scoring twice in four starts and providing one assist before being recalled by Wolves.

And despite an injury to Wolves man Jordan Graham, doubts persist over Van La Parra's future at the club.

HITC reported last week that Huddersfield have enquired after him. Wolves intentions are yet unclear.

Whether Leeds renew their interest in Van La Parra is unknown, but with their September preference, Jordan Botaka, struggling to even make the bench since his deadline day switch, a move for Van La Parra would be a smart upgrade - if they can pull off such a deal at late notice.
