Stoke City may now be willing to let Josh Tymon leave the club this week amid interest from Leeds United.

That is according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon, who claims that Stoke are now ‘ready to cash in’ on Tymon in the coming days.

It’s stated that Alex Neil may let Tymon leave the club in order to balance the books at Stoke after a busy summer.

The Potters have brought in Enda Stevens, Ben Pearson, Michael Rose, Daniel Johnson, Andre Vidigal, Wesley, Ryan Mmaee, Nikola Jojic, Mehdi Leris and Wouter Burger on permanent deals.

Add in loans for Ki-Jana Hoever, Chiquinho, Mark Travers and Luke McNally and we have seen Stoke invest massively in their squad.

Jacob Brown to Luton Town is the only considerable sale for Stoke this summer and that may mean that Tymon can move on.

It’s unclear just how much Stoke would demand for Tymon but Leeds United are keen and may well make their move in the coming days.

Leeds United a potential destination for Josh Tymon

Leeds have been chasing a new left back of late with Junior Firpo out injured to start the season.

Right-footed Sam Byram has been playing in that role but Leeds would no doubt love to bring in a more natural left back.

Tymon – praised for his athletic ability and described as ‘quick’ by Michael O’Neill – could fit the bill having racked up more than 100 Championship appearances over the course of his career.

Tymon is also just 24 and Leeds may believe that there is some untapped potential in the former England youth international.

There may also be a temptation to head to Leeds given that Tymon was born in Hull and a return closer to home could appeal.

Leeds have seemingly fancied Tymon for a while; The Daily Mail reported last summer that Leeds wanted to land Tymon as competition for Firpo.

Fast forward over a year and Leeds may finally get their hands on Tymon with Stoke seemingly open to striking a deal.
