“Smart business”: Sky expert reacts to transfer rumors about Leeds United

Jody Morris says Bournemouth were “smart” in hijacking a transfer deal from Leeds United for Norwich City right-back Max Aarons.

It never rains at Leeds United, but it rains in torrents. That’s why they’ve returned in the Championship and the transfer drama is still chasing them.

Daniel Farke thought he would reunite with Max Aarons after working with him at Carrow Road. The contract was about to be signed, sealed and delivered when Bournemouth arrived at the last minute Now he will be a Premier League player.

It’s a blow for Leeds as he would have been a quality signing at right-back. Former Derby manager Morris pointed out that “nothing will be done” until the ink is dry, as he told The Transfer Show Sky Sports (09/08/23 at 19:10).

You can’t blame Aarons as the 23-year-old has only played for Norwich in his senior career and has paced like a yo-yo.

It’s time for him to move on and although he thought his new home was at Elland Road, it’s instead at Premier League minnows Bournemouth.

Whether it’s a smart deal or a bad deal from Bournemouth, “No, it’s a smart deal,” Morris said.

“As long as nothing is signed and the ink is dry, nothing is done.”

Leeds must continue…

The next few weeks are crucial for Leeds and Farke as they will decide how their quest for promotion goes.

They drew their first league game of the season against Cardiff City and narrowly beat Shrewsbury Town last night in the League Cup.

Things aren’t going smoothly yet, but if they manage to sign and retain players in the transfer market, they could have a very good season ahead.
