Jamal Blackman is a player in demand, with Leeds United and Vitesse reported to be interested in the Chelsea goalkeeper, who spent the last season on loan at Sheffield United.
The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 59, July 1, 2018) has claimed that Blackman has flown to the Netherlands to have talks with Vitesse over a potential loan move (click here to read more).
The report has also claimed that the 24-year-old goalkeeper met with officials from Leeds earlier this week.
It seems that Blackman, who was quite successful during his loan spell at Sheffield United in the Championship last season, is exploring all his options, and maybe Leeds will miss out to Vitesse.
True, Leeds will be aiming for the Championship playoffs next season and have a brilliant coach in Marcelo Bielsa, but Vitesse could play in the Europa League next season.
Leonid Slutsky’s side will feature in 2018–19 UEFA Europa League second qualifying round, and that could be more tempting to Blackman.
