MOT View: 22y/o attacker wants to join Leeds but update from promotion rivals surely deal killer
One name that keeps getting linked with Leeds United is Emre Mor.
The 22-year-old winger is currently on loan at Galatasaray – enough in itself for alarm bells to be going off with Leeds fans.
Fotospor claimed that Leeds were interested but said there was concern at the club about signing a player directly connected with the Turkish side.
However, even more concerning to us is the player’s attitude after he’s fallen out with previous clubs Borussia Dortmund and Celta Vigo, with his price dropping all the time.
Celta Vigo paid £11.7m for him but the Sun claimed they were ready to let him go for free in the summer they were so fed up with him.
Haberler reported recently that Mor was keen to join Leeds in January and saw the club as a direct route to the Premier League.

Leeds aren’t the only Championship club who have been credited with an interest in Mor.
Brentford – Leeds’ closet rivals in the Championship – have also been linked and BT claimed today they were in talks over a move.
However, those talks have ended over Brentford’s serious concerns over the player. They were said to be put off by references on the player, along with agent comments and even concerns from some of the Championship club’s own players.
The very last thing Leeds need is a disruptive influence at the club and after how Pontus Jansson was quick-marched out of the club over behind-the-scenes issues, we can’t believe that Marcelo Bielsa would want Mor.
Leeds might be struggling to make any signings at the moment but if there was any genuine interest in Mor, it must surely be over after this latest update.
