Inter failed in their bid to sell academy players Ryan Nolan and Facundo Colidio to Leeds today, as reported by FcInterNews.it.
Both seemed destined to follow George Puscas to the Championship, after the Romanian joined Reading last night, but their moves fell apart for different reasons.
Leeds deemed Inter’s €6 million asking price for Colidio to be ‘excessive’, deciding not to push through with the deal as England’s transfer window slammed shut.
Nolan, meanwhile, was offered a three-year contract but backed away after discovering Leeds intended to loan him to Kilmarnock in Scotland.
Colidio scored 12 goals in all competitions for Inter’s Primavera last year, as well as creating six assists.
The forward never made his debut for the first team after joining in a €7 million deal from Boca Juniors, but he did train regularly with the squad under Luciano Spalletti.
Nolan made 42 appearances for Armando Madonna’s youth team, helping the Nerazzurri finish second behind league champions Atalanta.
