Transfer News: Liverpool Line Up £4m Swoop For Leeds Starlet, Villa Make £7.5m Bid While Newcastle Pursue Duo

Leif Davis

Liverpool are interested in Leeds left-back Leif Davis, according to reports in the English media.

The Reds are looking for an understudy for Andy Robertson with Alberto Moreno leaving on a free transfer, and they have identified the £4m rated Davis as a primary candidate.

Aston Villa have reportedly made a £7.5m offer for Luton fullback James Justin after an impressive season in League One.

A number of teams are believed to be monitoring the 19-year-old, with the player capable of playing on both flanks. He spent most of the campaign playing as a left-back for the Hatters but is predominantly right footed.

After Leeds’ failure to gain promotion to the Premier League, other clubs have been looking to take advantage with Newcastle reportedly eyeing midfielders Jack Clarke and Kalvin Phillips.

A swap deal for Dwight Gayle has been mooted but it is believed any transfer would involve a straight cash offer because the Yorkshire club won’t be able to afford the Magpies striker’s wages.
