Missed Opportunity: Leeds United’s Pursuit of Grady Diangana

Last summer, Leeds United explored the possibility of acquiring West Bromwich Albion’s attacking talent, Grady Diangana, for a reported £7 million. However, as the 25-year-old winger approaches the final year of his contract with West Brom, uncertainty surrounds his future. Despite a challenging couple of seasons, Diangana seems to be rediscovering his form.

Leeds were not the only ones eyeing Diangana’s services, with interest also coming from Burnley, Leicester, and clubs in Saudi Arabia. Despite the speculation, Diangana remained with West Brom and has recently been demonstrating his prowess on the field. In a recent match against QPR, although West Brom managed only a draw, Diangana notably contributed with a goal.

Throughout the 23-24 season, Diangana has proven himself as a valuable asset for West Brom, amassing seven goals and four assists in 26 appearances. Leeds, in particular, could have benefited from his talents, as they have seen commendable performances from players like Cree Summerville and Dan James but have lacked consistency from alternatives like Willy Gnonto and Jaidon Anthony.

Considering Diangana’s potential and his past performances, Leeds might have secured a bargain deal at £7 million. His abilities on the field would have provided Leeds with an additional attacking dimension, as recognized by Robert Snodgrass during their time together at West Ham in 2018.

However, Diangana’s contributions continue to benefit West Brom as they aim to secure a playoff spot in the coming league games. Leeds might even find themselves facing him in the playoffs, highlighting what could have been a missed opportunity for the Yorkshire club.
