Cuisance wants to leave Bayern in order for his development not to stall after playing just 12 games across all competitions last term, and Leeds have presented him with a project and offer that excite him.
The France youth international won the Champions League and Bundesliga title with the Germans last term, and his potential and talents caught the Whites’ eyes.
Leeds want to bolster their options in the middle of the park, and Cuisance’s ability to play in both defensive and attacking midfield roles will definitely come handy.
