Gradel exit rumours continue Tim Hodge August 23, 2011 Leeds United 48 Comments Media speculation over Max Gradel’s future continues with fresh reports linking the winger with a move away from Leeds. Today he has been linked with Fulham while reports are mixed as to whether West Ham are still in the hunt for the Ivorian after having a £2.5 million bid rejected. Max has said to the Daily Mail, “are Fulham interested in buying me? Yes. I know West Ham are interested in buying me, too.’ When questioned on the potential move to the Hammers, Gradel is quoted as saying “if I keep playing well, I’ll end up somewhere better.” Although Simon Grayson continues to state his determination to keep Gradel, with Leeds yet to tie up a contract extension for the winger, comments like these certainly don’t ease fans’ fears that Mad Max may be heading for the Elland Road exit at some point this season.
