‘Must be something about him’ – Have Leeds missed a trick amid intense interest in 25-y/o? Opinion



It seems as if Leeds United are ready to offload Caleb Ekuban, but are they missing a trick?

The 25-year-old is currently on loan to Turkish side Trabzonspor, who are reportedly keen on a making the move permanent in the summer.

But along with that, reports have surfaced that the Leeds man had three more admirers of his services, with three Italian clubs eyeing a move for the midfielder.

That is according to Turkish outlet Takvim, with the player having scored four goals and registering two assists in his 21 games for Trabzonspor this season.

Ekuban is an outcast at Elland Road, and there seems to be no future for him at the club having made just 20 appearances since his arrival.

But with all the interest abroad, are Leeds missing a trick in not looking to keep the midfielder at the club?

We asked our team of FLW writers if they believed that this is the case…

Jay Taylor

“There must be something about him to have all this interest in him.

“Leeds obviously don’t see it, and so something had gone wrong somewhere along the line.

“I think the ship has sailed, however, and be it his ability or attitude the club found lacking; I can’t imagine him getting another Elland Road chance.”

George Brooks

“Ekuban is a decent player, but I don’t think he will be good enough for Leeds United next season, especially if Marcelo Bielsa’s side win promotion to the Premier League.

“Though he’s done well in Turkey this season he only managed two goals for Leeds last season and would struggle to get into Bielsa’s first-team ahead of the likes of Kemar Roofe.”

Louie Chandler

“I don’t think so.

“For one, we have no idea how much of the speculation is genuine and also have no idea which clubs have enquired about him.

“Leeds have far better options already.”
