The reported Leeds United target is not set for Turkey, as previously reported.
According to Sportiv Media, Alvaro Negredo is weighing up a move to English Football, amid speculation linking him with Leeds United and Swansea City.
The 31-year-old Valencia striker has emerged as a shock target of Leeds, with Director of Football Victor Orta having signed him for Middlesbrough last summer.
And the Mirror reported that the Championship club were willing to pay £6.4 million to bring him to Elland Road, but The Sun then claimed that a switch to Turkish side Besiktas was imminent as United and Swansea looked to have missed out.
However, Sportiv Media has now reported that the former Manchester City hitman, signed for over £20 million in 2013, is not considering a switch to Turkey and will either return to English football or stay in Spain.
It offers Thomas Christiansen's side at least some hope of still signing him, if they are indeed interested.
Despite the rumours, it remains something of a long shot for him to be plying his trade in Yorkshire next summer, especially with Chris Wood scoring 30 goals last season.
There are arguably other areas in the squad which should be strengthened first, but time will tell whether Leeds go big for the Spain international.
