Leeds lodge bid for Ligue 1 goalscoring midfielder - report

By Will Butcher

Leeds have made an offer for Guingamp’s pacy winger Yannis Salibur, according to a report.

The 25-year-old was joint top scorer for the Ligue 1 side in 2015-16 with seven league goals from midfield, as they survived relegation with five points to spare.

French newspaper L’Equipe claim that the Yorkshire side have sent an offer to sign the Frenchman, who has a contract until 2018 after only signing with Guingamp from Clermont last summer.

Salibur started out at Lille but moved to Boulogne after failing to make an appearance for Les Dogues.

He has since moved to Clermont and then to Guingamp where he has caught the eye of new Leeds boss Garry Monk.

Salibur is renowned for his power, pace and ease to drift past an opponent, and this season has added goals to his game, too.

He has also been capped by France at under-17s, under-18s and under-19s.

Monk is looking to revitalise his Leeds side in an attempt to give them every chance of making a promotion push, and with only two recognised wingers in Jordan Botaka and Stuart Dallas, Salibur has emerged as a target.

In other Leeds news, this Sporting Lisbon striker could be heading to Elland Road as part of a loan deal.
