Report: Leeds United to make £4.5m raid for Wolves duo

Elland Road

Wolverhampton Wanderers duo Danny Batth and Matt Doherty are reportedly wanted by Leeds United.

Leeds United are interested in signing Danny Batth and Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, according to The Sunday Mirror (print edition, page 61, July 9, 2017).

It has been reported that Leeds head coach Thomas Christiansen is set to make a £4.5m bid for the Wolves duo.

Batth is 26 years of age and operates as a central defender, while Doherty is 25 years old and plays as a right-back.

According to The Sunday Mirror (print edition, page 61, July 9, 2017), Wolves will allow Batth to leave for £2m, while Doherty is valued at £2.5m.

The Wolves duo have a lot of experience in the Championship, and for a combined transfer fee of £4.5m, they could be smart business from Leeds.

Leeds could do with a centre-back and a right-back, and the knowledge and experience of Batth and Doherty in English football would be massive for the West Yorkshire outfit in their quest to finish in the top six of the Championship during the 2017-18 campaign.
