After seeing a number of rumoured deals go sour in the past few days, the brass at Leeds have apparently gone all-in towards landing Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman on loan.
Leeds United have turned their attention to Jamal Blackman. #lufc https://t.co/yHqvOL4Xuf— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) July 10, 2018
He was spotted at Thorp Arch about two weeks ago, and with Leeds still looking for a keeper after both Felix Weidwald and Andy Lonergan left the club, Leeds are running out of time to land anyone experienced before the first preseason match next week.
Blackman would fit the bill as an established Championship starter, although Bailey Peacock-Farrell did enough to make a case for him to start this season. Time is running out, though, and maybe this deal Leeds can get across the line?
