Leeds United are yet to make an official bid for Philadelphia Union left-back Kai Wagner this summer, according to Tom Bogert.

The MLS insider, who has also worked for the Guardian, has reported that everything can still change in the next three weeks with a potential deadline-busting move.

No other club has made a move either, with numerous clubs said to be interested in the All-Star defender who has caught the eye as the best in the county.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Bogert shared the latest news on a potential move coming from Elland Road before the end of the window.

“Still no official bid from Leeds United (or anyone else) for Philadelphia Union and MLS All-Star left back Kai Wagner, per sources,” he wrote.

“Plenty of time for that to change before the transfer window closes, but just interest for now.”

One to Watch.

Leeds and Victor Orta could make their move at any point.

Philadelphia Union manager Jim Curtin has already confirmed that he has held talks with Jesse Marsch over the German, with a move potentially very close.

The Whites are making their interest known and it is even said that a bargain move of only £2.5million is possible between the two clubs.

Junior Firpo is out for weeks still, and is working back from his injury leaving Pascal Struijk as our only option to play there out of position for that time if no one is signed.

Wagner could come in and solve that issue instantly, and having played in the Bundesliga, the next logical step could be a move to the Premier League.

With all of this talk, there is no smoke without fire and a bid is surely coming with Leeds ready to seal a deadline-busting move that will solve their squad depth problem instantly.
