Club Brugge coach confirms Leeds United target Senne Lammens wants transfer

Leeds United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Club Brugge goalkeeper Senne Lammens in the January transfer window.

In an interview with Belgian media outlet KW [20 January], Brugge’s goalkeeping coach Peter Mollez said that the 20-year-old wants to leave the club.

However, as he’s spent the last two years on the bench, he is keen on moving elsewhere and taking the next step in his career.

Mollez said, “Senne was still training with the reserves, but after four weeks I asked Frederic to move him to the first team.

“But I understand that Senne, who has been at Club since he was thirteen, wants to leave after two years on the bench. That boy should be able to take the next step in his career.”

According to the Daily Mail [15 January], the Whites are keen on signing him as his contract is running out at the end of the season.

Now, with the confirmation coming from Brugge about him wanting to leave, it does make a lot of sense for Leeds to explore the option to sign him this month.

Kristoffer Klaesson clearly has not had the best of times at Elland Road and if there’s a chance to cash in on his services, we believe that Leeds will take it.

It remains to be seen if they decide to wait until the summer to sign Lammens or if they make a move in the coming days as there’s not long left in the window.
