Forget Cuisance: Missing out on £3.6m-rated ace may prove to be Leeds’ biggest blunder – opinion

    Leeds United had a transfer window to remember.

    The Whites spent almost £100m on new talent, but despite so many additions, one of the biggest stories of the summer was a transfer that didn’t go through.

    Indeed, Michael Cuisance’s failed transfer from Bayern Munich made a lot of headlines this summer, but Leeds’ failure to sign another transfer target should haunt them even more than that one.

    How many times have Leeds United won the FA Cup?

    United looked set to sign Gyrano Kerk earlier in the window, but for one reason or another, he didn’t become a United player before the deadline.

    Leeds did end up signing a winger in the shape of Raphinha, but Kerk has wasted no time in showing Leeds what they’ve missed out on.

    The Dutchman has made a flying start to the 2020/21 season, netting twice in his first three appearances for FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.

    The £3.6m-rated ace has been tearing it up in his home country, and if he continues this type of form, Leeds will live to regret missing out on him this summer.

    There is a positive to take from his good form for Leeds, the club were seemingly on the right track with their scouting which is always a good sign, but it’s impossible to ignore the fact that their failure to sign him in the summer could come back to bite them, especially if Raphinha flops.

    Do you wish Leeds had signed Michael Cuisance?





    Cuisance was the big story when his deal collapsed, but we can’t help but feel that more should be made about Leeds’ failure to close out a deal for Kerk as he looks the real deal so far this season, winning two WhoScored Man of the Match awards to go alongside his two goals in Utrecht’s first three games of the season.

    Time will tell whether or not Kerk is that good or if he’s a flash in the pan, but at the moment, Leeds look to have missed out on a real gem.
