Report: Levante can't sign Leeds, West Ham-linked Radoja due to FFP

Nemanja Radoja of Celta de Vigo looks on during Celta de Vigo players before the pre-season friendly match between Celta de Vigo and Mainz 05 at Estadio de Balaidos on August 11, 2018 in...

Free agent Nemanja Radoja is attracting major interest.

Nemanja Radoja of Celta de Vigo looks on during the La Liga match between Celta de Vigo and Malaga at Balaidos Stadium on March 18, 2018 in Vigo, Spain.

According to Cadena SER in Spain, Levante have been unable to sign free agent midfielder Nemanja Radoja due to Financial Fair Play issues.

It's claimed that Levante want to land Radoja on a free transfer, but they are at their financial limit, and need players to leave in order to get a deal done.

That means the Serbian remains without a club, but La Liga rivals Real Betis and Leganes are also keen to sign him and keep him in Spain after leaving Celta Vigo.

 

The 26-year-old's future remains up in the air, but the likes of Leeds United and West Ham United may be interested in the latest developments.

TEAMtalk reported on Sunday that both clubs are keen to land Radoja on a free transfer, but that lingering interest in Spain may be interesting to him.

The midfielder has been in La Liga since leaving Vojvodina for Celta Vigo in 2014, where he became a star before being completely frozen out of the side.

Radoja refused to extend his contract last summer, meaning Celta cast him aside and let his contract run out this summer, meaning he hasn't kicked a ball for over a year.

That may be a concern to many, but Radoja is a combative midfielder with ability on the ball, and those players are always in demand.

With Levante struggling and West Ham unlikely to move given their squad limits, Leeds, Betis and Leganes may be emerging as the favourites for Radoja, who will hope to get a move sooner rather than later.
