According to reports from the Sun, the Orlando City striker Cyle Larin has decided to snub an offer from Leeds United in order to complete his January transfer to Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Canadian forward was a big transfer target of manager Thomas Christiansen, as he is looking for a striker that can replace Chris Wood after the New Zealand international moved to Burnley last summer.
It’s a real pity for Leeds that Larin did not accept to come to the Championship, as they are looking for a powerful striker.
His body constitution and scoring ability would have been very helpful in Leeds’ fight for promotion into the Premier League.
At the age of 20, Larin won the MLS Rookie of the Year Award in 2015 as he was one of the best strikers in the league and he then continued to provide great performances over the next two seasons, which earned attention from European teams.
As Leeds United have now lost out in the race for the talented Larin, the Whites will have to turn their attention to other attackers.
