Yeboah transfer stalled
Thursday 04 September 1997
Leeds and Hamburg have definitely agreed a fee of "around pounds 1m" for the Ghanaian international, who has been in self-imposed exile from Elland Road since the end of last season. The 31-year-old striker is still to negotiate personal terms, although both Leeds and Yeboah's agent are confident a deal can be struck.
Leeds' managing director, Jeremy Fenn, said: "There have been further unexpected developments today. Discussions have taken place, although they are still to be concluded on the playing side. We have agreed a fee, and I would hope everything can be finalised some time next week."
Yeboah's agent, Hayden Evans, confirmed: "There are several issues still to be resolved and a lot of work yet to be done. If the deal does go through, and we are hopeful, I can not see it being any earlier than next week."
Leeds will be keeping their fingers crossed that a deal for Yeboah, who cost them pounds 3.4m from Eintracht Frankfurt in January 1995, can be ironed out after the recent breakdown of the Swedish international Tomas Brolin's transfer to Real Zaragoza. Both players are out of favour at Elland Road following disputes with the manager, George Graham.
