Arnaut Danjuma clarifies come-and-get-me plea to Leeds United

Arnaut Danjuma has clarified his comments after insisting that he would love to join Leeds United over the summer.

The Bournemouth winger admitted live to Dutch media outlet Voetbal that he has outgrown the Championship and wants to move back to the Premier League.

Danjuma insisted that he didn’t mean to be disrespectful, but at the same time, he wanted to respect the Whites as well as the Cherries.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Danjuma responded to the Bournemouth fans that were left far from impressed.

“Seen a few quotes,” he wrote.

“Just to be clear I was put on the spot about a club in an interview and I was only trying to be respectful about them as I would any club.

“No way in a thousand years would I mean to be disrespectful about my club who has served me well for two seasons.”


Jonathan Woodgate has labelled the winger as “unbelievable” after his time working together with the Cherries.

There are plenty of clubs interested, although it has been suggested that Victor Orta does not have Danjuma as one of his targets on the shortlist.

Leeds are the one club that you can mention and bring instant attention to your come-and-get-me pleas, something that will also alert other clubs.

Bielsa will be concentrating on confirming the permanent signing of Jack Harrison first at Elland Road, before any other wingers come in.

Bournemouth fans won’t have been happy when this dropped, and even this so-called apology probably won’t go far enough to make up for it.
