Leeds United: Joe Wainman outlines concern amid Noa Lang transfer links

YouTuber Joe Wainman has claimed that touted Leeds United transfer target Noa Lang could upset fans in the future with his attitude if he was to join the club.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano (via LeedsLive), the Dutch winger is available this January and has drawn the interest of many clubs across Europe, sparking talk that the Whites could make a move for the player in the near future.

Lang was linked with Leeds over the past summer, so it would make sense if they were still interested in signing the 23-year-old this winter.

In reaction to this, while speaking on the JustJoe Football Show, Wainman stated that the player has ‘bags of potential’, but outlined some possible future issues in relation to his attitude.

He said: “We know that he doesn’t really want to be at Brugge, he thinks he’s better than Belgian football, and that calls into question his character, he does mad interviews etc, etc. Would he come to Leeds United and then move on and actually upset the fans? There is the potential for that.

“But listen, he’s got bags of potential. And Fabrizio Romano did say he is on the list for Leeds United as well as some other clubs around Europe – more specifically Italy, but it’s one that we are looking into still. So maybe Noa Lang could be a Leeds United player yet.”

TIF Thoughts on Noa Lang and Leeds…

These ‘mad’ interviews Wainman refers to will likely relate to some of the things Lang has said to the press not that long ago. Indeed, in the past, he has come across as rather arrogant.

For instance, he told Belgian outlet HLN (via @FootballOranje_) that he was essentially too good for Belgian football, saying: “Believe me: Belgium will miss me when I’m gone. I gave your football colour. Next season, you will pray that there will be a Noa Lang walking around in Belgium who can also play football so well.”

In fairness to the player, he certainly does have plenty of potential, which he showed by scoring nine goals and providing 15 assists in all competitions with Club Brugge last term, while he already has one goal and one assist in six games this season.

Still, seeing as he never really seems that far from another controversial outburst, it’s easy to feel as though Leeds would certainly be taking a big risk if they were to sign the Dutchman.

Is Noa Lang worth the risk for Leeds?
