Unilateral transfer clause emerges as Leeds United eye January transfer for Valencia left-back Jesus Vazquez

Valencia left-back Jesus Vazquez reportedly has a unilateral clause that allows him to leave for any club due to the lack of game time amid interest from Leeds United.

According to El Desmarque Valencia [30 November], the defender will be meeting in the coming weeks to discuss his future.

He does want to be the first-choice option sooner rather than later which is why he is exploring his options at and away from Valencia.

Worth pursuing?

Vazquez is an up and coming left-back in Spain and is already making the rounds in the media as one of the next big things there.

He certainly deserves to be playing week in and week out and that’s not going to happen at the Mestalla, by the look of things.

This opens the door for Leeds and gives them a major advantage in getting him over the line and it should be a move he welcomes.

Jesse Marsch likes playing on the front foot with his full-backs high and wide and the teenager is a perfect fit for that role.

He will certainly take time to adapt and can play on a rotational basis with Pascal Struijk until he learns the ropes.

This is a signing Leeds fans should be excited about if they do manage to get it over the line in the January transfer window.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are now scouting an attacker at the World Cup and a January move appears to be on the cards for them.
