Leeds United could receive a huge boost in the January transfer window as £4.9million will land in their coffers if an imminent topflight transfer goes through.
Tottenham left-back Danny Rose is a subject of a £50million transfer bid from Manchester United, with a deal likely to work out next month or in the summer.
The Elland Road outfit inserted a 10% sell-on clause in the deal that saw Rose leave for the north London club 10 years ago, and are due a windfall once he’s sold.
Leeds were forced to sell players in order to raise funds when the club entered administration following their relegation to League One in 2007, depriving the then promising youth academy graduate a chance to make his senior team bow.
The England international has expressed his desire to leave Tottenham, and it’s believed United will swoop sooner or later.
Despite attaining full fitness since October, the 27-year-old has made just 2 Premier League appearances.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is already preparing for Rose’s imminent exit, and it’s good news for Leeds.
The Championship club could do with more funds in January as they recruit for the second half of their promotion-targeting campaign, and a £4.9million windfall will no doubt come handy.
