Leeds United were linked with a move for Facundo Colidio of Inter Milan close to the transfer deadline.

Gianluca Di Marzio reported Leeds were keen to sign the Argentine youth international on a season long loan.

 

Leeds put their efforts into landing Eddie Nketiah in the end, shelving their reported interest.

Colidio did make a departure from Inter, he moved to Belgian side Sint-Truiden.

How is he getting on?

Colidio is struggling to make an impact on loan in Belgium so far.

The 19-year-old forward has made just one appearance in the Jupiler Pro League.

And in this he featured for just 13 minutes as a substitute.

He did have another appearance in the Belgian Cup, and this was more impactful. In just 29 minutes off the bench, Colidio provided an assist in a 2-0 extra time victory.

Lesson for Leeds

Eddie Nketiah is still looking for his first league start for Leeds too, but he has at least been playing regularly, seven times so far in the Championship.

Colidio is a bright talent, but he was probably not right for Leeds at this moment.

With Helder Costa struggling for regular game time, its unlikely Colidio would be either, considering he is not a regular in Belgium just yet.
