Leeds United appear to have missed out on strike target Fran Sol.

TeamTalk reported a fortnight ago that Leeds were tracking the Willem II striker after he scored 17 goals in 20 games this season.

The Whites have now reportedly missed out, with Laotra Liga reporting Sol has agreed to join Ukrainian side Dinamo Kiev.

 

Kiev have agreed to pay just 3 million Euros - £2.7 million.

Sol is said to have signed a five-year deal.

It's a bargain fee for a striker who has scored 47 goals in 88 games.

Leeds struck a deal with Willem II earlier in the season, to send Vurnon Anita out on loan.

While striker is not an immediate priority for Leeds, Marcelo Bielsa's side may have missed out on a bargain.
