Sergi Canos responds on Twitter to Sky story about Leeds January interest

By Amir Mir

Norwich midfielder Sergi Canos has responded positively on Twitter after a report suggested that Leeds are interested in signing him during the January transfer window.

Sky Sports claimed on their website on Tuesday morning that the Yorkshire giants are to rival Brentford for the former Liverpool ace.

As a result, the attacking midfielder liked two stories on his personal Twitter account which reported Sky’s breaking story on the Whites’ supposed interest in him.

However, it is reported by Sky that the right winger is open to a transfer and his preference would be to join Brentford if a deal can be secured between the two Championship clubs.

Spaniard Canos has struggled for game time at Carrow Road this season following his move from Liverpool last summer.

The 19-year-old has played five Championship and EFL Cup games this season, scoring two goals and supplying one assist.

The news of Canos’ interesting response will please the Elland Road faithful as they aim to add creativity and goals to their team this month.

Garry Monk’s side are aiming for promotion to the Premier League this term and they currently occupy a play-off spot after 25 games.

They beat League Two outfit Cambridge United 2-1 on Monday night to avoid a third-round upset in the FA Cup.

The Yorkshire club recently signed Spanish attacker Pablo Hernandez on a permanent basis after converting his half-season loan move into a permanent one.

Monk’s side take on fellow promotion chasers Derby County on Friday night as they look to continue their good form this season.

In other Leeds transfer news, these are the three reasons why the Whites should not be aggrieved by David Nugent’s snub.
