How that £30m is made up is not clear but there’s no denying that certain Whites' players are very much in vogue with definite bids on the table for Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Giuseppe Bellusci it seems.
Crucially, both Evans and Massimo Cellino are maintaining the line that Leeds will not sell their best players.
It would be a surprise if there wasn't any strong interest in Charlie Taylor who many believe to be United’s best player, even allowing for the talents of Byram, Cook and Mowatt.
January is a massive month for Leeds both in terms of potential ins.
And, God forbid, outs.
