NEC Nijmegen technical director Danny Hoekman has spoken about the interest in reported Leeds United’s target and Anthony Limbombe today, as the race to sign the player picks up.

Speaking after the signing of Reagy Baah Ofusu from SV Grodig he told Voetbal International that he is still unsure of the player’s future at the club:

"We acknowledge the serious interest seen but do not assume that he stays with us.”

The report also states that Leeds United remain interested in the player and are monitoring the situation. However, Club Brugge and Lille are also keen.

Leeds have continuously been linked with the player’s signature since they failed to snap him up last summer.

Leeds United were linked with plenty of players last summer, including Limbombe.

The 21-year-old winger was one of many options considered to fill the wide positions at Leeds.

It was reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post that Leeds had a £1.5 million bid for the attacker rejected by his club and that Leeds would not meet the asking price.

Leeds moved on, signing Jordan Botaka instead and then signing Will Buckley on loan from Sunderland in a move that flopped.

But it seems he is not off the club’s radar after the appointment of Garry Monk and that a move for the player could still come off.

Leeds have already sealed deals for Marcus Antonsson, Robert Green, Kemar Roofe, Kyle Bartley, Hadi Sacko and Matt Grimes this summer.
