Betting update: Odds on Leeds to sign £40k-a-week PL centre-forward slashed again
Leeds United’s odds to sign Leonardo Ulloa from Leicester during the January transfer window have been slashed for the second time in the past few days, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.
SkyBet still have Leeds priced as second favourites to sign Ulloa, 31, before the end of the month, but they are now 9/1 to sign the Argentine target man after a change in the market.
On Saturday, Leeds’ odds had been slashed from 14/1 to 10/1, and it seems that the trend is continuing after Thomas Christiansen dropped a huge hint that he would be in for a new striker at some point this month.
Aston Villa (9/4) remain favourites to sign Ulloa while Sunderland (12/1) are also in the running to sign the centre-forward, who is currently earning £40,000-a-week at the King Power.
The Mirror claimed on their live transfer blog on Saturday [01:55pm] that Villa have approached Leicester with an enquiry about Ulloa with a view to bolstering their strike force this month.
Leeds also have issues in attack, having failed to have amicably replaced Chris Wood when he was sold to Burnley for £15million in the summer.
Ulloa is certainly someone who has experience in the Championship from his previous spell with Brighton and he was also part of the Leicester side that miraculously won the Premier League in 2015/16.
However the Argentine appears well down the pecking order at the moment, and could be on the move this month.
