Leeds United ‘plot move for Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell’ as Marcelo Bielsa looks to sign the England Under 21 international for a fee around £15m
- Todd Cantwell impressed for Norwich in the Premier League last season
- The England Under-21 international was left out of Norwich’s squad on Sunday
- Leeds United are reportedly keen on strengthening their team with Cantwell
Leeds have launched a move for Norwich’s Todd Cantwell and the two clubs are in talks over a deal for the England Under-21 international.
A fee of £15million has been reported but no agreement has been struck and the midfielder still needs to agree personal terms at Elland Road.
Leeds United are reportedly interested in bringing Norwich talent Todd Cantwell to the club
Marcelo Bielsa has strengthened his squad this summer but is hoping for further signings
Leeds have already spent a club record £30million on striker Rodrigo from Valencia and signed defender Diego Llorente from Real Sociedad for a reported £17million, having lost out on Josko Gvardiol to RB Leipzig.
The Norfolk-born Cantwell has come through the club’s academy and has scored eight goals in 70 appearances.
The 22-year-old impressed last season despite the Canaries finishing bottom of the Premier League, scoring six times in 37 games.
Cantwell is expected to be the Canaries’ last major exit this window, unless a huge bid comes in for one of their stars.
Norwich sold Jamal Lewis for an initial £15million to Newcastle earlier this month.
Emi Buendia, who was keen on returning to the Premier League, is now likely to stay at Carrow Road if Cantwell completes his move.

Max Aarons has been wanted by Barcelona while Roma and AC Milan have also been linked with the right-back and defender Ben Godfrey still could stay.
Striker Teemu Pukki is expected to remain at Carrow Road despite having interested Wolves, Leeds, Sheffield United, Aston Villa and West Brom this summer.
Moritz Leitner, Josip Drmic and Tom Trybull are all free to find new clubs after they were stripped of their squad numbers, with midfielder Leitner in talks with three Championship clubs as well as some in Europe.
Despite his efforts Norwich were relegated last season and he could be set to leave the club
