A report from Belgium claims Leeds United have agreed personal terms with Club Brugge wonderkid Noa Lang. The report, from Voetbal Belgie, also says that talks between Leeds and Brugge are ‘progressing well’. Leeds have been linked with Lang for some time, and will cost around £21million.
Lang, 21, joined Brugge after four goals in 14 senior appearances at Ajax – signing on loan for the 2020-21 season. His impact was immediate, scoring 17 goals and creating 11 in 37 games as Brugge won the Belgian title. It saw Brugge make his loan a permanent one this summer – for £5.2m (Mirror).
Lang to Leeds: What does the report say, exactly?
Voetbal Belgie report: “Noa Lang would have a personal agreement with The Whites. Negotiations between Leeds United and Club Brugge are progressing well.”
Marcelo Bielsa claimed in his pre-Everton press conference on Thursday that Leeds are unlikely to make any more signings. But if something is going on behind the scenes, he is hardly going to make it public. Voetbal Belgie claim that Lang and his representatives have agreed personal terms.
The report states that talks between Leeds and Brugge are ongoing to agree a fee – with Lang rated at £21million, by a previous Voetbal Belgie report. It could be the reason why Leeds are willing to allow Ian Poveda to leave on loan – despite Poveda playing 14 times in the Premier League last season.
