Leeds credited with an interest in Okay Yokuslu


Celta Vigo midfielder Okay Yokuslu is a player in demand this summer.

According to Eldesmarque, multiple clubs are interested in signing the Turkish star who was on loan at West Bromwich Albion this past season.

The 27-year-old made quite an impression in the Premier League, and the Baggies, Leeds United and Crystal Palace are interested in signing him permanently.

Marcelo Bielsa could definitely use some depth in defensive midfield, and Yokuslu would be an ideal back-up for Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips has been outstanding over the last couple of seasons, but there is no specialist alternative to him and Leeds have suffered in his absence.

Yokuslu has a contract with the Spanish club until 2023, and Celta will have to come up with a reasonable asking price if they want him gone this summer.

A transfer to Leeds could be an attractive proposition for the player. He would get to play in the Premier League under the management of a top-class coach like Bielsa.

It is evident that he is unwanted at Celta, and moving on is the best option.

Although he might not be a regular starter at Elland Road, Bielsa’s system is physically demanding, and he could get ample game time through rotation.
