Leeds haggling over Weston fee


Leeds are haggling with Juventus over a fee to sign USA midfielder Weston McKennie.

Whites boss Jesse Marsch wants to land his countryman — but Leeds’ offer of £20million plus add-ons is short of Juve’s £30m valuation.

The 24-year-old is understood to have given the green light to a move, which would see him link up with his US team-mates Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson.

Leeds are optimistic they can strike a deal for World Cup star McKennie, who has also caught the eye of Arsenal and Aston Villa.

The midfielder joined Juventus on loan from Schalke in 2020 until his move became permanent a year later.

McKennie has since amassed a total of 13 goals and five assists in 96 appearances across all competitions.
