EFL side’s Leeds United transfer regret revealed

Published

on

Norwich City are said to regret not selling Todd Cantwell to Leeds United during the previous transfer window.

The playmaker was a man in-demand after an impressive campaign in the Premier League, as he scored six goals as the Canaries were relegated.

Whilst there was plenty of interest in Cantwell, the only formal offer was believed to have come from the Whites, who were prepared to pay around £15m for the 22-year-old.

With the Yellows holding out for £20m a deal could not be done, and Brazilian wide man Raphinha eventually moving to Elland Road.

And, Football Insider have claimed that Norwich are now ruing the fact they priced Leeds out of a move for Cantwell, with the report claiming that they are not happy with how his season has started.

The academy graduate was left out by Daniel Farke as speculation surrounding his future built last month and injuries have hindered him in recent weeks as well.

As a result, he has featured in just five games this season and is yet to score a goal or register an assist.

The verdict

This seems very harsh from Norwich, if true, and they should show more faith in Cantwell as he has the potential to be key to the team this season.

Firstly, if he was open to leaving in the window, it’s understandable. Leeds are a big club and more importantly would offer Premier League football, so any player would consider a switch if it came up.

However, it didn’t happen and Norwich now need to get Cantwell back to his previous levels. Once he is fit and has a run in the team he should show what he can do at this level.
