Leeds United’s chances of signing Eriksen deal assessed by Sky Sports expert

We are delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist, as each week he will give his views on the main talking points at Leeds United...

Leeds United have “no chance” of signing Christian Eriksen despite being linked with a move to Elland Road this summer, according to Paul Robinson.

CBS reporter Ben Jacobs reported The Football Terrace on June 23 that Leeds are keen to sign the 30-year-old Denmark international, whose contract at Brentford expires at the end of this month.

Jacobs said many Premier League clubs are keen on Eriksen and added that Leeds have a better chance of signing the Danish playmaker than his former club Tottenham.

Robinson, who played for Leeds and Spurs, finds that hard to believe and believes Eriksen will either stay in London at Spurs or Brentford or Manchester United.

“He’s a pipe dream, they have no chance of signing him”, Robinson said WORD Leeds News.

“Yes, although Leeds are a big club, they are not in competition with Tottenham and Manchester United for player signings.

Tottenham offers Champions League football and Man United offers Europa League football and they are also one of the biggest clubs in the world.

As much as it’s nice to be related to players like that. I can’t see it being anything more than just a link.

I don’t see at all where the link is with Eriksen and Leeds. Jesse Marsch has no relevance for Eriksen, he has no relevance for City and can Leeds offer what Man United, Tottenham and Brentford can offer? Probably not.

I don’t see any legs in there.

Eriksen joined Brentford on a short-term deal in January after being released by Inter Milan.

He capped a stunning comeback after his on-field cardiac arrest at the European Championships at the West London club, appearing 11 times in the Premier League, scoring one goal and providing four assists.

In other Leeds United news, documents have been exchanged for this player to leave Leeds after two weeks back and forth.
