Leeds United’s wait to reinforce its line of attack came to an end on Monday when the club completed the signing of RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin on loan for the rest of the season.
After Arsenal decided to withdraw Eddie Nketiah from his loan period on Elland Road early, Leeds has been desperate to add a new face to their attack ranks in an attempt to boost their promotional aspirations.
And Marcelo Bielsa’s wait for that wish to come true finally ended today when the whites concluded an agreement for Augustin, who could join the whites permanently in the summer if the promotion were achieved.
Augustin becomes Leeds’ third addition to the January transfer window, after goalkeeper Elia Caprille and young endman Ian Poveda go through the door of Elland Road.
So, with Leeds finally securing a striker, plus the importance of preparing for a championship clash with Millwall on Tuesday night, we’ve gathered all the latest Leeds United transfer news of the day.
Leeds will challenge rivals in the championship promotion for the Cameroon defender
Leeds is ready to fight against other candidates for the West Bromwich Albion Championship title to try to get the defense of Saint Etienne Harold Moukoudi.
The French publication L’Equipe reports that both Leeds and Baggies are monitoring Cameroon International, 22.
It is believed that the defender, who is also claimed by the Premier League team, Burnley, would be available on loan.
The central only joined Saint Etienne of the French club Le Havre in July last year for a fee of around £ 2.7 million.
Leeds hit Jarrod Bowen
Leeds has been closely linked to a movement for the Hull City star Jarrod Bowen along the January transfer window, with the Tigers attacker having a long list of suitors.
After scoring 16 goals in the Championship this season, the 23-year-old has been one of the main topics of January conversation and it is reported that Leeds has shown great interest.
However, any hope Leeds has had of attracting Bowen to Elland Road by the 11 p.m. deadline. Friday night has vanished, apparently with the head of the Tigers, Grant McCann, confirming that Bowen has told him he doesn’t want to go anywhere.

McCann told HullLive: “He has told me on numerous occasions that he wants to stay here and have that promotion momentum. But I am realistic and I know that if someone enters with money that the club cannot refuse, then we ‘will have to think about it.”
