If Leeds United are still hoping to bring William Remy to Elland Road in the near future, they can take some heart from knowing that, not only is he out of contract at the end of the season, but he is also barely featuring at Montpellier.
What the future holds is anyone’s guess but the fact that the former France Under-19 international has not made a single appearance in the French top flight this season, and only started eight games in 2016/17 too, makes it unlikely that he will still be a Montpellier player this time next year.
Remy, who finished as a runner-up in the 2008 European Under-17 Championships, will be a free agent when his contract expires in July. Considering he is clearly not in their plans, Montpellier may be tempted to cash in during the January window.
Either way, Leeds have an excellent chance to land Remy either for nothing or on a cut-price deal. Considering that Thomas Christiansen’s side are a little light at centre-half, especially with Matthew Pennington suffering with injuries in the early days of his loan from Everton, Remy would be well received at Elland Road.
The defender, who arrived at Montpellier from Dijon in 2015, is renowned for his strength in the air and his quality in possession.
