Leif Davis’ move from Leeds United to AFC Bournemouth has collapsed, according to Football Insider.
Davis made only two Premier League appearances for Leeds last season, with both coming as cameos against Manchester City and Manchester United.
The left-back has been strongly linked with a loan move away from Elland Road, with AFC Bournemouth vying for his signature for the forthcoming season.
Football Insider recently reported that Davis was in advanced talks ahead of a loan switch to the Vitality Stadium.

But now, they report that Davis’ move from Leeds to Bournemouth has collapsed, despite talks being held between the two clubs.
Marcelo Bielsa is said to have been keen for Davis to leave Elland Road on a temporary basis, as he looked to get regular minutes into the 21-year-old.
Leeds have bolstered their left-back options following Gjanni Alioski’s departure with Junior Firpo arriving from Barcelona, but it remains to be seen whether the potential arrival of another left-back could see Davis’ exit take another U-turn.
This is undoubtedly a bit frustrating for Bournemouth.
Scott Parker seems to have been keen on a move for Davis as he looks to strengthen his options down the left-hand side.
Having played only twice in the top-flight last season, you’d normally expect a young player like Davis, who needs regular game time, to be a fairly straight-forward loan target.
But Leeds clearly do not want to risk letting Davis leave without bringing in a back-up option to Firpo of their own.
