Report: Championship club looking to sell ‘quick’ defender this week, Leeds United interested

Leeds United are interested in signing Josh Tymon and Stoke City appear ready to let him go before the transfer deadline.

Leeds United interest may mean Stoke City are ready to let Josh Tymon leave the club this week.

This is acc Alan Nixon of The Sunwho claims Stoke is now ready to cash in on Tymon in the coming days.

Word is Alex may let Neil Tymon leave the club to even the tally at Stoke after a busy summer.

The Potters have signed Enda Stevens, Ben Pearson, Michael Rose, Daniel Johnson, Andre Vidigal, Wesley, Ryan Mmaee, Nikola Jojic, Mehdi Leris and Wouter Burger to permanent deals.

Add in the loans of Ki-Jana Hoever, Chiquinho, Mark Travers and Luke McNally and we’ve seen Stoke invest heavily in his squad.

Jacob Brown to Luton Town is the only significant sale for Stoke this summer and that could mean Tymon can move on.

It’s unclear how much Stoke would ask for Tymon but Leeds United are keen and could well make his move in the coming days.

Leeds United are potential targets for Josh Tymon

Leeds have been on the hunt for a new left-back lately with Junior Firpo injured at the start of the season.

Right-footed Sam Byram played that role but Leeds would undoubtedly like to field a more natural left-back.

Tymon – is praised for his athletic ability and is described by Michael O’Neill as “fast”. – could be just the ticket as he has made more than 100 championship appearances throughout his career.

Tymon is also just 24 and Leeds may believe the former England youth international has untapped potential.

There may also be a temptation to travel to Leeds as Tymon was born in Hull and a return closer to home could be attractive.

Leeds have apparently been interested in Tymon for some time; The Daily Mail reported last summer that Leeds were looking to sign Tymon as a competitor for Firpo.

Over a year later, Leeds could finally get their hands on Tymon, with Stoke appearing ready to strike a deal.
