Reported Leeds target Sasa Kalajdzic comments on transfer speculation

Marcelo Bielsa, manager of Leeds United looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road on December 08, 2018 in Leeds, England.

Sasa Kalajdzic could be on his way to the Championship with Leeds United, although Bundesliga newcomers Union Berlin and Cologne are also linked.

Leeds United are interested in signing Admira Wacker forward Sasa Kalajdzic, according to Welt Fussball, although the player himself has admitted that the ongoing speculation surrounding his future is becoming a little ‘uncomfortable’.

The 21-year-old made his breakthrough during the 2018/19 campaign, scoring eight goals and providing five assists in 15 games for the Austrian Bundesliga outfit.

And it seems that his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed with Welt Fussball claiming that Leeds are keen to lure Kalajdzic to Elland Road as they plot another Premier League promotion push.

 

German trio Cologne, Union Berlin and Stuttgart, who were recently relegated from the top flight, are also interested.

Not that Kalajdzic is enjoying being the centre of attention.

“To be honest, I find it somewhat amusing when you read such a thing in the media everywhere, it's just a bit uncomfortable when all the people ask you about it," said the youngster, who has been included in Austria’s squad for the upcoming U21 European Championships in Poland.

Also capable of playing in central midfield, Kalajdzic would add versatility and firepower to a Leeds squad who fell short at the final hurdle last season, their lack of goals proving costly in crucial moments.

Kalajdzic has just one year left on his contract at Admira Wacker.
