Leeds United Officially Confirm The Signing Of Another Brilliant, ‘Outstanding’ Star

Agreement Reached For £10.6m Brighton Brilliant Player And To Depart In 45mins

Leeds United are set to confirm the signing of Argentina playmaker Facundo Buonanotte from Brighton in the next few days, but according to multiple sources the deal is not quite all it is made out to be.

The Whites have endured an astonishing turnover of players since relegation. Indeed, they have lost 12 players from the end of last season, many of whom have departed Elland Road on loan.


Incredibly, the Whites still only have Willy Gnonto, Luis Sinisterra and Georginio Rutter on the books from the players who signed during the 2022/23 campaign – and two of those in Gnonto and Sinisterra want out.


Whether they get their moves or not remains to be seen with the window set to close for business at 11pm on Friday September 1.


However, one thing that is certain is that Leeds do need to focus on player recruitment with the club devastated by both player exits and a series of injuries at present.

To that end, the club could only field seven substitutes – two of which were goalkeepers – in Friday night’s 1-1 draw against West Brom.


As such, efforts are now being stepped up to bolster Daniel Farke’s squad before the window shuts, with midfielders, a No 10 and a new striker their main objectives.


Thankfully for Farke, they should soon activate a deal for one of those, with Brighton star Buonanotte strongly reported to be heading to Elland Road.


The 18-year-old star moved to the Seagulls last January in a £10.6m deal (£5.3m up front and a further £5.3m in add-ons) from Rosario Central. Featuring 14 times over the second half of the season, Buonanotte scored one goal and added one assist from just 565 minutes of action.
