Presenter Conor McGilligan has slammed the most recent rumours linking Leeds United with a possible January move for Che Adams.
With Premier League football now back and the winter market set to open soon, there should be plenty to be excited about for fans over the coming weeks.
The journalist wrote: “Never totally discount Southampton forward Che Adams, either – he’s been discussed at Elland Road before.”
However, this doesn’t seem to have inspired much excitement from McGilligan. He called the links ‘boring’ while discussing them on the One Leeds Fan Channel.
Indeed, the presenter said: “Che Adams – that name just gets circulated consistently, it’s boring, it’s never going to happen. Che Adams is getting circulated all the time. We hear the same names.”
TIF Thoughts on Che Adams and Leeds…
To be fair to McGilligan, the club have been linked with Adams before. For instance, The Sun tipped him with a possible switch to Leeds in the summer but that move never materialised.
Adams – hailed “sensational” earlier in the season – does have eight goals in all competitions for the Saints this year, so it’s easy to see what he could bring to Leeds if a transfer was to be completed.
For now, though, a deal doesn’t seem that close, so it’s probably wise not to get your hopes up too much at this stage – unless the prospect of Adams arriving at Leeds is underwhelming, of course.
