Leeds United are in a battle with Derby County for Florian Jozefzoon, and Marcelo Bielsa's side also want Matej Vydra.

Derby County could strike a double transfer blow to Leeds United this week, if they continue to refuse to budge over Matej Vydra and sign Florian Jozefzoon from Brentford.

The Derby Telegraph have reported how Leeds have been keen on Vydra for weeks now, but Derby are refusing to compromise over their valuation of the striker.

Derby want £11 million for Vydra, and that is causing problems at Leeds, who are unsure whether to meet that figure.

The Derby Telegraph suggest that a decision will be made on Vydra’s future sooner rather than later, with a move to Leeds now in serious doubt.

And the Rams could strike a double blow to Leeds’ transfer plans, if they also bring in Jozefzoon.

Sky Sports have reported how Derby and Leeds are both in the battle for Jozefzoon, with the pair now trying to get a deal done for the Brentford man.

Neither club have been able to agree a fee yet, but if Derby do move ahead of Leeds in the race, then Marcelo Bielsa may have to think again about his attack next season.

Leeds had wanted Vydra and Jozefzoon in their new look front-line for next campaign, but with both deals in doubt, the Whites need to ensure that they have a contingency plan in place, just in case they are frustrated by Derby.
