Team Talk has reported that Leeds United are interested in signing Nemanja Radoja.

The former Celta Vigo midfielder, who has over 100 games in Spain's top flight, is a free agent and would be able to join the Whites, despite the transfer window being closed.

And according to Team Talk, Leeds are interested in the 26-year-old Serbian powerhouse, who is predominantly a defensive midfielder.

The report adds that Leeds could face competition in the form of West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion, both of whom are also interested.

 

This could be quite a savvy coup for the Elland Road club, if it happens.

Radoja, who has an EU passport, was valued at £8 million only two years ago [Transfermarkt] and despite him having a major injury in that time, it may still represent a bargain for United.

Leeds have enjoyed a decent start to the 2019-20 campaign, winning three and drawing one of their first four games in all competitions so far.
