Mirror journalist David Anderson has said that Leeds United “will not” move for either Norwich’s Todd Cantwell or Derby’s Louie Sibley before the domestic deadline on Friday. 

Anderson claimed that Leeds do not have the cash to sign either player after spending close to £100m on players already this summer.

However, he did say that Leeds would maintain an interest in both players.

This comes after Victor Orta confirmed the club’s interest in both players.

End of the window for Leeds?

We thought that Raphinha would be the last player to sign for Leeds this summer and it looks like that’s going to be the case.

There has been plenty of speculation linking Leeds with Cantwell and Sibley, with domestic deals still able to be done by Friday.

However, it seems that Leeds spending has come to an end.

That was also the view of MOT Leeds News columnist Paul Robinson who told us on Tuesday, “Leeds have been linked with a lot of players this summer and the spending has to stop somewhere.

“From the outside looking in, I think the manager is very happy with the business he’s done.”

It was reported on Tuesday that Norwich want £25m for Cantwell which is a ridiculous price for a player who fell away in the Premier League last season.

Meanwhile, Football Insider has claimed that Derby want £10m for Sibley.

Unless either club drops their valuation dramatically, it looks like Leeds are happy to play the waiting game.

There might still be business done at Leeds. Anderson went on to say there could be outgoings, with Barry Douglas and Robbie Gotts potentially leaving before Friday’s deadline.
