Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed Leeds boss Jesse Marsh can help seal a summer deal for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson.
The 21-year-old has been linked with the midfielder’s move, and O’Rourke believes the young player could link up with manager Marsh this summer.
“That was the thing they tried to do in January and couldn’t do it, so they’re definitely going to rekindle their interest in this and Jesse Marsh with his American connections should boost their chances of closing this deal.” Rourke, speaking of Aaronson To Jeff Me Sport.
The move makes sense for both parties, as a move to the Premier League is often high on the agenda for players outside the top five leagues. Aaronson is also American, just like former manager Marsh.
