Leeds United and Wigan Athletic have agreed a fee of £500,000 for the transfer of Rodolph Austin, according to Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old Jamaican international is one of Leeds’ most experienced players having made 94 appearances for the club since joining from SK Brann in 2012.

A regular in his side, Neil Redfearn has stated publicly that he wants to keep Austin and even claimed to have received assurances from those above that the midfielder would not be sold.

If Sky Sports are accurate and Austin is indeed sold, this would once again demonstrate the limited power Neil Redfearn has over the playing side and would surely frustrate a Leeds United head coach whose side are very young and severely lacking in experience.

It’s worth noting that Rodolph Austin’s contract expires in the summer and that may be a factor in any decision to sell, but failure to tie down players would be a concern in itself.

Elsewhere, Leeds are hoping to sign Albanian striker Edgar Cani before the window closes at 11pm tomorrow and there’s been talk of a move for Millwall winger Martin Woolford, potentially involving a swap deal for Michael Tonge.
