Premierleague-News.com - In the latest Leeds United news, Noel Whelan has reacted after the Athletic revealed the club are negotiating with RB Leipzing over Jean-Kevin Augustin.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! 1065436952">Noel Whelan believes it is inevitable that Leeds United will have to pay RB Leipzig a major fee for Jean-Kevin Augustin despite him joining Nantes on a free. Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Leeds ace and boyhood Whites supporter delivered his verdict after the striker completed a deadline day move to the French side. The 23-year-old moved to Elland Road in January on a loan-to-buy deal but he made just three substitute appearances for the Whites. The German side insist that Leeds’ promotion to the Premier League triggered an £18million transfer League but the Yorkshire giants maintain that deal expired in June. Leeds only won promotion in August meaning Augustin’s status was in limbo before he moved back to his native France on a free last week.

Asked by Football Insider whether RB Leipzig have now lost their leverage after allowing the striker to leave for free, Whelan said: “Well, yes but they’ll still be looking for some kind of compensation.
“They’ll think he shouldn’t be going to Nantes, he should be going to Leeds.
“There was a deal in place and between the two clubs a compromise has to be made.
