Sources: Leeds United line up £3million-plus George Hall offer
Leeds United are lining up a new bid for Birmingham City sensation George Hall after having a £3million offer rejected, sources have told Football Insider.
The Premier League club have continued to monitor the situation of the attacking midfielder, 18, following their late-summer swoop.
It is believed Birmingham knocked back an offer from Leeds offer for Hall in the final fortnight of the window which was a total package of £3m including performance related add-ons.
United are planning to return to the negotiating table with a new offer for Hall in the January window.
They will be expected to increase their £3m summer bid with the rising star now further integrated in the Birmingham first team.
There is even a possibility an agreement could be reached before the window opens.

Hall has now made 17 Birmingham senior appearances, 15 of which have come in this season’s Championship.
However, he has only started five of them and feels disappointed not to have had as much game time as expected when signing his first senior contract in November 2021.
Leeds recruitment team have identified Hall as an outstanding young talent capable of developing into a Premier League-level player.
The midfielder also played 11 times for the Under-23s last term, scoring three goals, as well as a further seven games for the Under-18s with three goals and two assists.
He has also featured eight times for England Under-18s.
Leeds have previously signed a top youngster from Birmingham.
United lured teenage winger Amari Miller from the Championship club in the summer of 2021 in what was their first signing of that window.
