Leeds boost as Eredivisie outfit sign replacement for £3m winger - report

By Will Butcher

Leeds target Anthony Limbombe is set to leave NEC Nijmegen after the Dutch club confirmed the signing of former Ingolstadt winger Reagy Baah Ofosu, according to a report.

Limbombe, who has been linked with a move to Leeds all summer and in past transfer windows, is set to be replaced by Ofosu, who has signed a two-year contract at NEC.

Dutch publication Voetbal International claim that Leeds aren’t the only interested party in acquiring Limbombe’s services.

French outfit Lille have joined Belgian Champions Club Brugge in hot pursuit of the 21-year-old.

NEC have demanded that any interested party cough up a princely £3million for their star man, which could prove a stumbling block for Leeds manager Garry Monk.

The Belgium under-19 international is known for his explosive pace and also has an eye for goal, scoring seven goals and making seven more in the League from the wide-left position last season.

Monk is keen to add width to his Leeds squad, with only Jordan Botaka, Stuart Dallas and new on-loan signing Hadi Sacko recognised as wingers.

It’s already been a busy window for Monk, with the former Swansea manager bringing in six new players. The most expensive recruit has been League Two Player of the Year Kemar Roofe, who cost £3million from Oxford United.

In other Leeds news, Monk has opened talks to sign this teenage sensation ahead of Premier League interest.
