Leeds have overtaken Newcastle in the race to sign Inter’s academy forward Facundo Colidio and could complete a deal today, according to Gianlucadimarzio.com

Newcastle were in talks with the Nerazzurri last week over a loan deal for the 19-year-old, which would have included an option to buy and a subsequent buy-back clause for Inter.

The Championship club, who are managed by Colidio’s fellow Argentine Marcelo Bielsa, have since moved ahead of the Magpies, though, and are favourites to sign the striker.

Inter were working with Leeds this afternoon to find a definitive agreement.

Colidio racked up 31 appearances in all competitions for Inter’s Primavera last year, scoring 12 goals and creating six assists.

He made the move to Serie A two summers ago, when the Nerazzurri signed him from Boca Juniors for €7 million.

Colidio suffered a personal disappointment earlier this year when he was left out of Fernando Batista’s 21-man squad for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Poland.

He has never made his debut for Inter’s first team but frequently trained with the squad under Luciano Spalletti.
