Scottish giants Celtic are preparing to make a big bid for their star man Matt O’Riley in January after it emerged that Brentford are planning to test the Glasgow side’s resolve this winter.
The stylish midfielder was previously heavily linked with a move to Elland Road, with it even being suggested that the Whites saw an offer accepted in the off-season This summer only for O’Riley to decide not to leave Celtic Park.
Football website TEAMTalk now reports that Brentford are closely monitoring the Denmark Under-21 international and could be preparing a bid ahead of the January transfer window, leaving Leeds United with a decision to make on whether to revive their move.. their interest or not.
Any supporters hoping for automatic promotion this season may be a little nervous looking at the Championship standings. Before this weekend’s match, the gap between Whites and second-placed team Ipswich Town was 9 points.
Luckily, Leeds boss Daniel Farke is not one to pay much attention to that.. “The difference with Ipswich or whatever doesn’t matter to me,” he said this week.. “Rank only matters after 40 games.
“I also don’t like the fact that we always have to worry about something, so if you offer me third place after a really difficult summer break And you said at the end of August we would be in third place and top six with a good total, a lot of people would say it would be great if we were in that position.
Leeds have a chance to close that gap this afternoon, albeit briefly: The Whites kick off at 12..30 at Elland Road, meaning the gap could be back to six points before ‘ Ipswich had no chance to respond.
