SK Brann CEO Brunn-Hansen has confirmed a bid has been tabled by Leeds United for Jamaican midfielder Rodolph Austin.

Speaking to Norwegian news outfit BA, SK Brann’s CEO confirmed a bid had been made but refused to comment further.

Reports in Norway suggest the bid was for 2,000,000 Kroner, which is roughly £200,000, but SK Brann’s price-tag is almost double that figure.

Jamaican international Austin looks to be a tough-tackling midfield warrior capable of surging runs that cut through opposition defences. He will require a work permit to work in the UK but this shouldn’t be an issue as he is a regular feature of the Jamaican international team.
