Speaking to Voetbal International, NEC technical director, Danny Hoekman, has admitted that there is interest in Leeds United target Anthony Limbombe at the moment.

Following another mediocre campaign, Leeds United are set to go through a major overhaul this summer and it is believed that newly appointed manager Garry Monk will be bringing in numerous players to Elland Road.

NEC star Anthony Limbombe has been mentioned as a target for Leeds for quite a while now and it was recently revealed that the Whites have been given encouragement to pursue the young winger this summer after the Express reported he handed in a transfer request.

Now NEC technical director, Danny Hoekman, has gone on to speak regarding the future of Limbombe and has dropped a huge hint that the 21-year-old leaving the Goffertstadion this summer is a possibility.

He told Voetbal International, "There is dormant interest (in Limbombe), but we have received no bids yet. The transfer market has not really started, it's quiet. Tomorrow may be different.”

Limbombe is considered as one of the most promising young players plying their trade in the Dutch Eredivisie and he enjoyed a fine campaign last term, scoring 7 goals as well as providing 7 assists.

Leeds were believed to have been unsuccessful with a £1.5 million bid for Limbombe last summer but with the winger entering the final year of his contract at NEC, the Championship side now stand a better chance of signing their long term target this summer.
