Leeds In Transfer Talks Over 12-Goal Striker – Reports

Leeds United are reportedly in talks with Fulham over the transfer of striker Matt Smith, as reported by Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Smith recently signed a new deal with the Elland Road side, ending speculation that he was on the cusp of a move to Millwall, but it now seems as though the former Premier League side could yet tempt him into leaving Yorkshire.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is a known fan of Smith, having considered him to be one of few players up to scratch at the end of last season. The deal, as it stands, still has a while to go be confirmed.

Fulham would reunite Smith with his old strike partner Ross McCormack at Craven Cottage. McCormack moved to the London side for £11 million earlier this summer.

The duo plundered a sensational tally of goals together in the Championship last season, with Smith scoring 12 and McCormack putting away 29, and were clearly an effective partnership that another club might hope to put together again.
