Joe Gelhardt has lots of admirers this month as Daniel Farke continues to overlook the striker at Leeds United and now, Carlos Corberan would ‘love’ to take the forward to West Bromwich Albion.
The transfer specialist for The Sun, Alan Nixon, claims that West Brom is the most recent team to express interest in the Leeds player. Nixon reveals this on his Patreon channel. Gelhardt had trouble getting into the game.
In our last 20 league games, he has only managed one Championship appearance, substituting during the 1-1 draw with Coventry. This term, Gelhardt has also had to deal with a lot of annoying injuries.
League rivals Blackburn, Preston, and Hull are also anxious to acquire Gelhardt north of the border this month, as are Celtic and Rangers. It is also reported that Plymouth has a strong chance of obtaining him.
Nixon now asserts that Corberan, who managed Leeds’ U21 team before joining Marcelo Bielsa as a coach and departing in 2020 to take over Huddersfield, would “love” to get back together.
Leeds striker Joe Gelhardt is a target for West Brom to sign on loan.
Leeds wants Gelhardt’s salaries to be paid in full to any interested parties, which can cause friction. But given that the striker was once again an unutilized substitute on Saturday afternoon, a move for him is likely.
Gelhardt was viewed as one of the players that may profit from relegation to the Championship at Elland Road. However, he has limited game time because Patrick Bamford, Joel Piroe, and Georginio Rutter are ahead of him.
He could benefit from a loan, especially because he works under a management he is well familiar with. Up top, West Brom does have options in Daryl Dike and Brandon Thomas-Asante. Gelhardt, however, provides an alternative.
