Leeds United news as Whites linked with West Bromwich Albion swoop

Here are this morning's Leeds United headlines on Sunday, June 18.

Leeds United linked with West Brom swoop

Leeds United have been linked with a move for West Bromwich Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby. The Republic of Ireland midfielder is said to be interesting the Whites, according to Alan Nixon in The Sun on Sunday, who claims that the Baggies star 'will be available at the right price.'

Molumby is a Republic of Ireland international and has established himself as a key player for the Baggies over the past two seasons, offering bite in the centre of their midfield.

Central midfield is an area that Leeds will need to strengthen this season, especially if they lose the likes of Tyler Adams and Marc Roca this summer, with both players being linked with a move away from Elland Road following the club's relegation back to the Championship.

Leeds have also been linked with Molumby's head coach at West Brom, Carlos Corberan, as they look to wrap up their search for a new boss in the coming days.

Farke's Championship record speaks for itself as Leeds United continue search

If Leeds United are looking for a manager with a proven track record in the Championship then there may be no better candidates than Daniel Farke.

As Leeds' search for Sam Allardyce's successor continues, former Norwich City boss Daniel Farke is reportedly still on the shortlist. And as far as his Championship record goes, well it speaks for itself. He won the title twice in his three second-tier campaigns at Norwich City, and would seemingly be well-placed then to get Leeds back to the big time too.

While Farke would ultimately fail in both attempts to keep the Canaries in the top flight (he was sacked after just 11 games of his second attempt), the German head coach has proven a master of guiding a side out of the Championship and to the Premier League.

Leeds United's new transfer vetting process should be working on six priorities

Ceremonial it may be, but the transfer window officially opened this week. Business can officially start to go through across the country, but Leeds United are unlikely to move for anyone swiftly.

With the relief of a deal being agreed between 49ers Enterprises and Aser Ventures last week, there is at least some framework for Angus Kinnear to follow. The chief executive, vice-chairman Paraag Marathe and director Peter Lowy are expected to be key in whittling down the head coach hunt which is an absolute priority right now.

It would be foolish to pursue transfer targets when it is unclear who will ultimately be calling the shots on the field. A recruitment chief filling Victor Orta’s vacancy is likely to be a later appointment, but in the meantime there is a temporary solution in the form of Nick Hammond.
