Alvaro Negredo TEAMtalk

Leeds United have made an enquiry about Besiktas striker Alvaro Negredo, according to a report in Turkey.

Turkish-Football claim “a source close to the Istanbul-based club” has revealed that both Leeds United and West Brom have made enquiries about the availability of the Spanish striker this week.

No bids have been lodged for the former Man City forward and with the deadline approaching at 5pm today any deal looks a long shot, although Leeds could still take the player on loan up until the end of the month.

Negredo played for Leeds’ new director of football Victor Orta during his time at the Riverside with Middlesbrough.

Cardiff and Aston Villa have also been linked with a £3million move for 32-year-old Negredo, who has just one-year remaining on his deal in Turkey.

Negredo made 68 Premier League appearances for Middlesbrough and City, scoring 18 goals, while he scored seven times and grabbed six assists in 31 appearances for Besiktas last season.
