Leeds fans react to reports Cardiff could sign Middlesbrough's Aden Flint

Leeds fans show their support prior to the Sky Bet Championship Play-off semi final second leg match between Leeds United and Derby County at Elland Road on May 15, 2019 in Leeds, England.

Flint was linked with a move to Leeds United while still a Bristol City player.

Leeds United fans are reacting to reports that Cardiff City could be about to sign Aden Flint from Middlesbrough.

According to the Northern Echo, Flint is due to undergo a medical at Cardiff ahead of a £4 million move, which could rise to £6m with add-ons.

 

The centre-back was linked with Leeds while still a Bristol City player and could have helped to fill the void recently created by Pontus Jansson's sale to Brentford.

Leeds are said to have received a similar fee for Jansson, and several of a Whites persuasion cannot believe their side have, seemingly, failed to make an approach of their own.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Others, though, believe that, for all of his defensive qualities, Flint would not be well-suited to Marcelo Bielsa's system.

Leeds have already added one new centre-back, in the shape of Ben White, this summer.

And it remains to be seen whether or not Bielsa will seek to add to his options in the final three weeks of the window.

Marcelo Bielsa coach of Leeds United awaits the start of the match between Manchester United and Leeds United at Optus Stadium on July 17, 2019 in Perth, Australia.

Would Flint have been a good addition for Leeds?
