Leeds United reportedly baulked at the South American’s price-tag.
Well, Leeds United won’t be renewing an interest in Facundo Colidio in January.
The Argentine striker, whose £5.5 million price-tag United refused to meet on deadline day [FC Inter News], has joined Sint Truiden.
The 19-year-old has signed for them on a season-long loan, which means that any hope Leeds had of going back in for the Inter Milan prospect this winter is over.
By joining Sint Truiden, Colidio is now team-mates with a man who fans of the Elland Road club know well.
That’s because the Belgian outfit are captained by a certain Jordan Botaka, who spent two years in West Yorkshire before leaving in 2017.
The DR Congo winger joined Leeds on September 1 four years ago but managed only 13 Championship appearances that year under Uwe Rosler and later Steve Evans.
Garry Monk then loaned him to Charlton for the 2016-17 campaign, before being snapped up by Sint Truiden on a Bosman the following summer.
Time will tell whether Leeds were right to baulk at his £5.5 million price-tag. After all, it’s a substantial fee to pay for a teenage striker with virtually no senior experience under his belt.
