Birmingham City have followed up reported interest of Mirco Antenucci by making a firm enquiry for the striker’s services, according to Phil Hay.
The Italian striker is set to leave the Elland Road outfit this summer and will not be short of suitors, but it appears Birmingham are the first club to make a solid move for the front man.
Antenucci has been at Leeds since 2014 when he made the move over from Italy and Serie B side Ternana.
Leeds confirmed Antenucci was to leave last week when they announced their retained list, with defender Scott Wootton another noticeable name on that list.
It follows what has been another tumultuous season at Elland Road, with several off the field issues affecting the club and its owner Massimo Cellino, while on the field, Steve Evans managed to guide the club to a respectable mid table finish despite the distractions.
It remains unclear whether Evans will remain the managerial hot seat next term, but in allowing Antenucci to leave, Evans is already exerting some influence over next seasons squad.
Antenucci made 80 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals including 9 last season.
Leeds fans, what do you think? Happy to see him leave? Let us know below!
