West Ham were linked with the Uruguay international earlier in the summer.

In May, we covered a report here on HITC Sport from Corriere dello Sport claiming that West Ham are keen on the midfielder.

Tuttomercatoweb reported over the weekend that Leeds are restarted talks over bringing Nandez from Cagliari.

We covered the report here on HITC Sport.

It seems that Leeds will not have a clear run at the 25-year-old, who scored two goals and gave two assists in 31 Serie A starts for Cagliari last season.

There is likely to be more twists and turns regarding this particular transfer story in the coming days.
