David Prutton gushes over potential Leeds United signing after details emerge

David Prutton has gushed over the potential fee Leeds United could sign Bayern Munich ace Marc Roca for in the summer transfer window. 

Jesse Marsch is looking to revamp the Whites squad after their too close for comfort scare with relegation which saw them fight until the very last game of the 2021/22 campaign. 

On 13 June, the Daily Mail reported in their print edition [page 75] that the Elland Road outfit held positive talks with the Bundesliga side over a deal worth £10million for the 25-year-old.

The Sky Sports pundit wrote in his Yorkshire Evening Post column: “If, as suggested, Leeds can get him for around £10m then that sounds pretty decent in today’s footballing terms,” Prutton said. “Obviously, if he signs then the proof will be in the pudding.

“That is, as to whether he is any good or not but that experience of being at a club the size of Bayern would stand him in good stead to play for a club like Leeds. They are tooling up at the right time.”


Leeds could be signing a player from Bayern Munich for £10million, if you would have said that not so long ago amid their relegation crisis, you most probably would have been laughed at. 

The Whites have enjoyed a seismic turnaround in recent weeks and fair play to them – after their 2021/22 nightmare, they really do deserve it. 

Marsch and the players did the business on the pitch by staying in the Premier League and now it looks as if the chiefs are following that up in the transfer market which is just as important as staying in the league because they wouldn’t want to face the same issues in 2022/23.

Closing in on a third signing already this window is absolutely insane and it is already getting the fans excited about next term.

Hopefully, they can keep hold of their stars as well and give Marsch a real chance to turn things around with this squad.
