📢EXCLUSIVE : Leeds player to jet out within hours for medical to quit for good-report


Diego Llorente is set to travel to Spain within hours for a medical ahead of his move from Leeds United to Real Betis, according to ABC.

The Spanish publication reported (July 7) that a deal for the Spaniard’s return to La Liga is now “very close”.

This report was disputed by the Yorkshire Evening Post (5 July), which suggested that the Whites had rejected all offers for Llorente.

Diego Llorente could leave Leeds United for Real Betis

Due to various reports on the Spaniard, it is unclear whether or not he will move this summer.

Having spent last season on loan at Roma after Leeds were relegated, Llorente seems unlikely to want to play Championship football.

This could mean the 30-year-old will decide to move, and European football appears to be a requirement for the defender.

In his three Premier League campaigns at Elland Road, the former Real Madrid man has been a positive option in the back line for the Whites.

There is no doubt that he would have been one of the best defenders in the division had he stayed at Leeds in League Two.

If Llorente doesn’t see his future at the Whites, the move makes sense for any side in need of a transfer.

This could help Daniel Farke bring in further defensive reinforcements after bringing in Joe Rodon for good this summer.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites player’s entourage are convinced an exit from Elland Road is imminent.
