Leeds United could rekindle interest in Norwich City winger Todd Cantwell transfer
Leeds United could rekindle their interest in signing Todd Cantwell after Norwich City are willing to listen to the offers.
The Whites made their first attempt to sign the 23-year-old in 2020 but failed to reach City’s asking price of Â£ 20million, according to the Mirror.
The winger’s contract at Carrow Road expires this summer, but Norwich has the option of extending the contract for a year if he wishes.

But with the Canaries struggling in the Premier League, The sun reported last week that the club will have to sell one of their key assets in order to make moves in the transfer window, with Max Aarons and Cantwell mentioned.
The Canaries would ideally like to keep Aarons for the remainder of the season, but SunSport understands they have spoken to other clubs about the Cantwell transfer, although there has been “no concrete interest”.
Cantwell has struggled for form this season and appeared to have fallen out of favor with former boss Daniel Farke.
He only started two games for the Canaries under Dean Smith and was last seen in the tunnel in frustration after being substituted against Aston Villa.
HITC reports that Leeds United sporting director Victor Orta could once again acquire Cantwell’s services as he seeks to add a playmaker to his ranks.
The Daily Mail also claimed Cantwell was on Leeds’ shortlist, along with Ross Barkley at Chelsea, Boubacar Kamara (Marseille), John Swift (Reading) and James Maxwell (Rangers).
Cantwell has praised Leeds in the past, praising the club for a “fantastic” season on the ITV football podcast in May earlier this year.
