Leeds make emphatic decision on £10m forward after terms agreed - report
By Alex Stevens
Alfonso Pedraza will leave Leeds United for good at the end of the season, according to a report.
The Yorkshire Evening Post claim the Spanish wide forward will not be back for a second year after failing to live up to expectations during his loan spell.
It is said that Leeds had agreed the terms of a deal close to £10million with Villarreal to sign Pedraza permanently had they been promoted to the Premier League.
The Yorkshire Evening Post claim there is no inclination from Leeds to push ahead with an alternative deal for the two-times Spain Under-21 international.
Pedraza has scored just a single goal in 13 league games, eight of which he has started, since joining on the final day of the January transfer window.

Football Insider verdict:
There are no two ways about it. Pedraza has been a big disappointment. With his pace, sure footwork and technical ability, he promised so much. But a single goal and no assists from 709 minutes of Championship action tells an emphatic tale of a player who could not translate his exquisite form of the Spanish second tier into its English counterpart. Leeds agreed the Pedraza deal in January on the never-never. Well done to them. The Spaniard will never ever be a force in the English league.
