According to key sources, Last Word on Football understands that Leeds United have agreed personal terms with three targets in key positions. This is corroborated by news from The Athletic that the club are close to signing Ethan Ampadu from Chelsea.

Ethan Ampadu Agreement with Chelsea

According to Phil Hay at The Athletic, the Whites are set to sign Ethan Ampadu from Chelsea. Thanks to the Welshman’s experience as a right-sided centre-back, the club have a natural replacement for Diego Llorente and Robin Koch, both of whom have left the club on loan. Not only is Ampadu young, but the Blues defender has plenty of match experience, with over 40 caps for Wales to date in spite of his age.

Fabrizio Romano has revealed a sell-on clause twist as Leeds United have agreed a deal and personal terms to sign Chelsea defender Ethan Ampadu.

The Sky Sports Italy journalist claims [17 July] that there will be no buy-back clause, however, the Blues have included a sell-on clause in the agreement.

This means that if the Whites are to sell him in the future, Chelsea will be entitled to a part of the transfer fee, based on the finer details of the agreement.

Via Twitter, Romao wrote, “More on the Ethan Ampadu-Leeds deal. Understand Chelsea will include sell on clause into the agreement. NO buy back clause; only sell-on.”

Fair enough

Chelsea are known to be good sellers as they’ve proven this summer and Ampadu is one among many to be shown the door

It makes sense on their behalf to include a sell-on clause as he’s only 22 and can better in the future and be worth a lot more.

Had Leeds not agreed to this clause, they would’ve had to pay more money up front and the transfer fee would’ve risen unnecessarily.

They cannot afford to do that, given the number of players leaving and he seemed to be a priority move and they’ve ended up getting him pretty quickly.

Often, Leeds have taken their time to get a deal done for a player despite registering interest in him for a while.

However, news emerged of Ampadu not too long ago and now everything seems to be done with an announcement unlikely to be too far away

Nat Phillips from Liverpool

Our sources also indicate that the Elland Road hierarchy has reached an agreement with Nat Phillips, the Liverpool centre-back. Whilst there is no discussion surrounding whether or not the club are willing to meet the Anfield side’s requirements for a fee, this move would add further depth and prevent the club from being caught short in the event of injuries to other defenders. Such a move makes sense, with rumours around Phillips having a future at Leeds spreading last week. Agreeing personal terms is the natural next step in these discussions.

Glen Kamara from Rangers

Midfield is another area that the Whites need to strengthen in the coming weeks, with Rangers’ Glen Kamara reported by our source to have agreed terms with the club leadership at Elland Road. Although a potentially complex deal to get done due to the Scottish club’s drive to return to the top of their league, his defensive presence coupled with creative capabilities are just what Daniel Farke needs to open up league rivals
