Agent boost for Leeds and Crystal Palace of over £ 5.2million
Premier League rivals Leeds United and Crystal Palace have been given a boost in their pursuit of Okay Yokuslu, the former West Brom ace shutting the door on a return to Turkey, as reported Sporx.
West Bromwich Albion finished a distant 19e during their brief return to the top – sinking like a rock without ever threatening to replicate the great escape of the Bryan Robson era.
Oddly, however, a multitude of players still managed to come out of a disastrous campaign with their reputation. reinforced.
Matheus Pereira and Sam Johnstone look sure to get some big wins before August 31, while lenders Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Conor Gallagher and the eternally frustrating Mbaye Diagne have all been associated with more Premier League chances.
Yokuslu on Leeds and Crystal Palace radars
Yokuslu, meanwhile, gained many admirers thanks to his diligent and disciplined performances in the heart of the midfield, tackling tackles one second before breaking the lines with a piercing ball the next.
Leeds want a deep enforcer who can ease the burden of Kalvin ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’ Phillips and El Desmarque reports that Whites will face Crystal Palace for the signing of Yokuslu.
The Turkey international recently admitted that he hopes to secure a return to England, via the Express & Star, and his agent has now shed light on the situation.
And reading between the lines, it’s clear that an approach from Marcelo Bielsa would be more than a little tempting.
“We do not intend to return to Turkey,” said Batur Altiparmak, ignoring a possible transfer to Fenerbahce.
Yokuslu appears to have no future with Liga Celta Vigo squad, with the £ 5.2million ball winner falling nicely down the pecking order at Balaidos Stadium before joining West Brom on loan in January .
The 27-year-old did not do Euro 2020 justice, however, with Turkey proving to be more like donkeys than “black horses”.
