Leeds United have been linked with a move for Genk technical director Dimitri de Conde.

The Whites remain in the market for Victor Orta’s replacement following his sacking earlier this month, with Nieuwsblad reporting de Conde is a target.

The 48-year-old has been at Genk for over eight years now and has done an impressive job at the Belgian side, generating £260 million in player sales.

De Conde has become renowned for his ability to develop and sell on young talent for profit and as such, would fit the bill of Leeds’ recent strategy.

Leeds should target move for Mike Tresor

If Leeds are able to prise de Conde to Elland Road, he should make the most of his contacts at Genk and pursue a move for Mike Tresor.

Leeds are likely to lose an abundance of their attacking talent this summer if they are relegated and will be in desperate need of some replacements.

Luis Sinisterra and Jack Harrison have both been touted as likely departures, while Wilfried Gnonto is also attracting interest.

Those players are likely to generate a decent amount of funds and Leeds should look to push the boat out on Tresor regardless of the division they are in.

Tresor was bought by de Conde at Genk from Dutch side Willem II two years ago and has enjoyed a superb campaign this term.

The 23-year-old has scored eight goals and provided 23 assists across 40 appearances in all competitions, comfortably his best season to date.

Burnley successfully recruited a number of players from Belgium last summer ahead of romping to the Championship title, and a move for Tresor would make a lot of sense if de Conde arrives as sporting director.
