Leeds United decide against potential £10million deal

According to reports, Leeds United will not sign Alfonso Pedraza on a permanent basis. The 21-year-old arrived at the Yorkshire club from Spanish outfit Villarreal in January, with the two clubs agreeing that a permanent sale could take place during the summer.

However it has been reported that a sale would only have taken place had Leeds won promotion to the Premier League.

For much of the season, Leeds were challenging for a place in the promotion playoffs, however they ended up finishing seventh and five points adrift off a place in the playoffs.

During his spell with Leeds, Pedraza failed to make a significant impact having netted just once from 14 appearances.

This combined by the fact that they have not won promotion has probably influenced their decision not to sign the Spanish international in a transfer which would have been worth around £10 million. Gary Monk’s side will now need to look at other wingers.
