A round-up of the latest Leeds United transfer rumours on Thursday, May 11.
Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres is expected to be a man in demand this summer, especially if the Sky Blues do not earn a long-awaited return to the Premier League. The Sweden international has netted 21 goals in the Championship, and could add to his tally for the season with a playoff semi-final against Middlesbrough to come.
Leeds United are among a host of Premier League clubs to be credited with an interest in the 24-year-old. The latest report from Sky Sports News indicates Wolves are the 'leading club' for the striker, with Crystal Palace and West Ham also considering summer moves.
Should Coventry fail to earn promotion through the playoffs, a transfer fee in the region of £25 million has been mooted for Gyokeres. The striker, who also has 10 assists to his name this term, is set to enter the final year of his contract, and speculation suggests a summer exit is almost inevitable as a result.
Leeds United, along with Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City, have been linked with a move for Mandela Keita. The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Royal Antwerp from OH Leuven since January, but is not expected to make the move permanent.
As it stands, Keita is returning to his parent club although Het Nieuwsblad via Sport Witness claim it is 'evident' the Belgian prospect is keen to move elsewhere. However, OH Leuven are keen to bank a fee in the region of £8 million as this was the agreed fee for Royal Antwerp to make the deal permanent.
