Report: Leeds ended interest in Marco Migliorini following Salerno's departure

Leeds have reportedly ended their interest in signing Marco Migliorini.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Leeds ended their interest in signing Juve Stabia defender Marco Migliorini after the departure of Nicola Salerno.

The Whites have made a number of new signings this summer, with the likes of Sol Bamba, Lee Erwin and Chris Wood all arriving at Elland Road so far.

The deal for Bamba was set up by former sporting director Salerno, who left Elland Road last month after just one year in the job.

However, details are emerging in Italy that Leeds had been pursuing another defender, with Juve Stabia's Marco Migliorini a target according to Tutto Mercato Web.

The 23-year-old has already had quite a nomadic career, and whilst TMW report that newly-promoted Serie A side Carpi are interested in the defender, Leeds have allegedly ended their interest due to Salerno's departure, suggesting that he was purely a suggestion from the former sporting director.

What would Migliorini have added for Leeds?

The Italian stands at a whopping 6ft 4in tall, possessing great strength and aerial ability - which would certainly have been welcomed in the Leeds back line.

With Bamba, Liam Cooper and Giuseppe Bellusci in the ranks, manager Uwe Rosler may look to add another defender, but it seemingly won't be Migliorini.

After an influx of players from Italian football over the last 12 months, fans may now prefer Leeds to look closer to home for new signings, such as Erwin and Wood, rather than again sign Serie B players.
