Report: Leeds to offload international before window closes, offer accepted

Leeds United have accepted a loan offer from Luton Town for out-of-favour midfielder Eunan O’Kane, according to Football Insider.

The Republic of Ireland international has been on the fringe of the action at Elland Road this season, with Marcelo Bielsa clearly not having the 29-year-old in his plans.

Leeds have other options in the heart of midfield, with the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich preferred by the Whites coach.

O’Kane has not featured for the Yorkshire club since the 2017-18 campaign and was farmed out to Luton at the start of last season.

However, the Leeds midfielder suffered a serious injury and is only now back fighting fit and looking for first-team football.

The report suggests that the Elland Road outfit have accepted a bid for Luton and a deal is set to be concluded before the January transfer window closes on Friday night.

Leeds are pushing for promotion and sit on top of the Championship table currently with 55 points from 29 games.

Luton are fighting to stay in the division and sit at the bottom of the pile with 24 points from 29 fixtures.
