Leeds United now furious with crazy Bamba Dieng developments on deadline day - Fabrizio Romano

Leeds United are now furious with Marseille striker Bamba Dieng amid crazy developments on deadline day, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The reliable journalist has shared that the Senegal forward is still at a French airport with his agent negotiating with OGC Nice after they made a late push.

Romano has shared that a decision has been made to make the move to Nice, with the Whites calling off negotiations due to the shocking last-minute developments.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Romano shared the developments from Elland Road with anger clearly spreading through the boardroom.

“Crazy story of the day. Bamba Dieng is at the airport right now with his agent negotiating with OGC Nice,” he wrote. a

“And Leeds now furious after reaching an agreement with OM and player earlier today.”


This is embarrassing.

As it looked easy to complete the deal earlier today, Leeds have now been left with no one.

There is going to be outrage at Elland Road over this with agreements having been in place, but what can you do when agents and players pull off stunts like this one.

A four-year contract was on the table for the striker, so it’s not like his future would have been secured with big Premier League money likely on offer to get it done.

The lack of ambition is frightening, and we can’t even blame Leeds for not getting this one over the line as you cannot prepare for something like this to happen.

With negotiations off, Victor Orta is going to have to move very quickly to find another option, or we will be left with nothing but injury-plagued options in the final third.

Can we stop that Dan James’ move to Fulham? That may have to be an option.
