Leeds United keeping tabs on Okay Yokuslu


Leeds United have been linked with a move for Celta Vigo midfielder Okay Yokuslu.

The midfielder was on loan at West Bromwich Albion during the second half of this season, and his performances have caught the attention of the Elland Road outfit as per Faro de Vigo.


The Turkish midfielder is clearly not a key player for the Spanish side, and Leeds could be a good move.

The 27-year-old has adapted well to the Premier League and could make an immediate impact for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

His contract with Celta Vigo expires in the summer of 2023, and it would be fair to assume that the Spanish side will have reasonable demands for him.

Leeds could definitely use more depth in the midfield, and Yokuslu could be an alternative to Kalvin Phillips next season.

Bielsa had to field centre-backs like Robin Koch in defensive midfield when Phillips was absent, and it affected the team’s performances.

Yokuslu has done reasonably well for the Baggies despite their relegation, and he is likely to be tempted if Leeds come calling with a concrete offer.

The chance to play for a club of their stature and the opportunity to work with a top-class coach like Bielsa could prove too good to turn down.
