According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Ronaldo Vieira has an offer to double his wages away from Leeds United.

Leeds have agreed a deal with Sampdoria for the young midfielder, who looks set to move to the Italian side today.

 

Vieira had been happy to stay with Leeds, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side have reportedly decided that he is an expendable player.

Vieira did not feature regularly in pre-season, and appeared to be knocked down the pecking order by Mateusz Klich’s excellent showings since his return to Elland Road.

Leeds have started to spend this summer, following the additions of Patrick Bamford and Barry Douglas, and they will recoup some of their outlet, with Vieira’s sale set to land them around £7 million.
