Leeds willing to sell attacker Ekuban

Marcelo Bielsa is prepared to offload Leeds United centre-forward Caleb Ekuban this summer, according to Ghana Football.

The news website claims that the Whites manager is willing to sanction the exit of the 24-year-old after his difficult first season in English football.

It is understood that Albanian side Partizani Tirana are interested in signing the attacker, as he previously enjoyed a brilliant loan spell with them in the 2016/17 campaign and they would like to form a reunion.

Good move for Leeds????

Ekuban managed just two goals in his 21 senior appearances for Leeds and didn’t show enough to suggest he can become the number one option at Elland Road.

The striker has a decent work-rate and pace, but lacks a clinical touch in front of goal and Bielsa needs a frontman that can fire 20-goals next season if they want to be serious contenders in the hunt for promotion.

Likely to happen??

Ekuban reportedly doesn’t feature in the plans of Bielsa and that is why it would be no shock to see him leave Leeds this summer.

He previously netted 18 times in just 42 appearances during his loan with Partizani Tirana and they want to bring him back to the club.
