Tottenham have been busy in the new face market this summer so it’s time for some departures to take place too.

Their estimate of £20m for Giovani Lo Celso has yet to be met, with Villarreal targeting another loan deal, the Times says, while Fiorentina have asked for a loan with a £15m permanent option.

Elland Road’s side have tried to sign Charles De Ketelaere from Club Brugge but face stiff competition from Serie A champions AC Milan, with the American identifying forward and left-back as areas for improvement.

“I’d say we’re actively pursuing both positions,” said Marsch before Leeds trained in front of hundreds of fans in Fremantle. “The striker, I think it’s well documented that De Ketelaere was one of our targets and it’s not over with him.

“But we also moved on to some other targets and tried to figure out which one would fit best if it ended up not being available, which we believe.”

“What I’ve seen in the last week or two, we have to work even harder to make it happen.”

The Hammers signed Nayef Aguerd for £28million earlier this summer but the new centre-back has already suffered an injury that could be problematic in pre-season.

“We’ve already had Nayef X-rayed and there’s no fracture in his ankle, which is good news,” Moyes said. “It could be ligaments or he sprained his ankle – he exploded right away so let’s hope it’s not a problem.”
