Middlesbrough signed the Benin international from Aston Villa in the January transfer window for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £6m.
It seems that Boro want to make a profit of £4m on Gestede, and from a financial aspect, it makes sense.
After all, Leeds have £15m to spend following the sale of New Zealand international striker Chris Wood to Burnley this month, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.
Gestede failed to make an impact for Middlesbrough last season, scoring just one goal in 16 Premier League appearances.
So far this campaign, the 28-year-old has scored one goal and provided one assist in three Championship starts for Middlesbrough.
