Leeds may be completing late-window O'Brien deal after latest - pundit
Gabby Agbonlahor has suggested Huddersfield Town may decide to sell Lewis O’Brien to Leeds United in the final week of the transfer window.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward suggested Huddersfield may lower the asking price for O’Brien before 31 August.
Football Insider revealed on 13 August that the midfielder wants to quit the Terriers and join the Whites amid interest from them and Crystal Palace.
The Sun‘s Alan Nixon reported on 21 August Palace are now out of the race as they are set to wrap up a deal for Watford contract rebel Will Hughes.
That has opened the door for Leeds to complete a deal for O’Brien.
It is claimed Huddersfield will now accept a £5million fee, plus add-ons, for the 22-year-old.

He has just 12 months left to run on his Town contract but the club have the option to extend it by a further year.
Asked whether a late-window deal could now materialise for Leeds, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “It could do.
“It just depends what the club want for him. If they see him as a player that they want too much money for then I’m sure it won’t happen.
“But when you get into the last week of the transfer window then anything can happen. So, yeah, I can see it going through.”
O’Brien has scored five goals and provided seven assists in 85 games across all competitions for Huddersfield.
The Englishman has already played four times this season after missing the start of the season with an illness.
