Leeds told 'get it done' after Costa-Danjuma swap deal update - Kenny
Leeds United should offer Helder Costa in a part-exchange deal for Bournemouth’s Arnaut Danjuma.
That is according to ex-Whites shot-stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the pair of wingers.
According to the Sun on 18th July (print edition, p61), Leeds are eyeing a move for Danjuma.
The Cherries are claimed to value the 24-year-old Dutchman, who is under contract until 2024, at £35million.
Costa, 27, signed permanently for Leeds last summer and his deal also runs until 2024.
Kenny raved over Danjuma and insists that Costa should be used as a makeweight in a deal to bring him to Elland Road.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “I don’t see why they wouldn’t want to get it done, a swap deal with Costa.
“It would work for everyone. He’s done unbelievable at Bournemouth and he scores loads of goals for a winger.
“He could be a really great player for Leeds. He’s only in his early 20s and he’s had an excellent season last year.
“So it could be a possibility that Leeds use Costa to try and get him. It hasn’t really worked out for him since he signed.
“With Costa, you do get those players who are too good for the Championship but not quite good enough for the Premier League.”
Danjuma scored 17 goals and supplied eight assists in 37 appearances across all competitions last term.
Costa meanwhile netted three and assisted three in 23 matches following his move from Wolves.
