Leeds United’s Interest in Ryan Manning
Leeds United is considering a move for Ryan Manning during the upcoming summer transfer window.
Manning, the left-back for Swansea City, has a contract that is set to expire next month, and Swansea has acknowledged that he will most likely leave the club.
It is believed that this situation is unlikely to change, as several clubs in the Championship and the Premier League have already shown interest.
Football League World reports that Leeds United is one of those clubs and is keen on signing the Irishman, regardless of their relegation fate from the Premier League.
Leeds United is currently two points away from safety following their 3-1 defeat at West Ham United on Sunday.
Jersey Boy Samuel Henia Kamau Joins Swansea City
Swansea City has reportedly completed the signing of Samuel Henia Kamau, a highly-rated teenage striker.
The 17-year-old currently plays for Jersey Bulls and has attracted the attention of several Championship clubs, with Premier League side Fulham also showing interest.
However, Swansea City has emerged as the winners in the race to secure his signature.
It is expected that Kamau will initially join Swansea’s academy setup, although the club has yet to officially confirm the move.
Speaking to the Jersey Evening Post, the youngster expressed his delight and gratitude for the opportunity, thanking his teammates and coaches who have contributed to his development as a player.
Premier League Clubs Pursue Viktor Gyokeres
Brentford is reportedly looking to sign former Swansea City striker Viktor Gyokeres, but their chances may depend on whether Coventry City fails to reach the Premier League.
Coventry City will face Luton Town in the Championship play-off final, and Gyokeres is expected to play a crucial role for his team at Wembley, having scored 21 goals this season.
The Daily Mail reports that Brentford, Everton, West Ham, and Leeds United are among the Premier League clubs showing interest in Gyokeres.
Brentford sees the Swedish striker as a suitable replacement for Ivan Toney, who has been banned for eight months due to a breach of FA betting rules.
However, if Coventry City secures promotion, it could complicate a potential deal for Gyokeres.
