leeds could face an 18m legal fight over jean kevin augustin with rb leipzig

Neither Leeds nor parent club RB Leipzig want Jean-Kevin Augustin, with the clubs set to enter a legal battle over who the Frenchman should play for next season. 

The Elland Road side secured promotion to the Premier League as Championship winners last week, with the English giants finally returning to the top flight after a 16-year absence. 

Augustin had little influence in the triumph, making just three brief substitute appearances after signing for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in January – on loan until the end of the coronavirus-hit campaign.

Despite the flop, Bielsa could now be stuck with Augustin, with Leipzig claiming Leeds have an obligation to buy the striker for £18m due to a clause triggered when they claimed promotion, according to Bild.   

The Whites have no intention of keeping the 23-year-old and reportedly claim the clause expired on July 1 – an argument complicated by the coronavirus pandemic extending the season. 

Bild believe the dispute is heading for the courts, with Leipzig set to file a lawsuit and complain to FIFA.

Augustin was touted as a future star after rising through PSG’s academy before being sold to Leipzig for £14m in 2017. 

Never challenging Leipzig’s record goalscorer Timo Werner for a place in the starting XI, the Parisian’s best campaign for the German side was a nine-goal season from 25 appearances and 14 starts in 2017-18. 

He has now recorded two disappointing loan spells during his Leipzig career, scoring just once for Monaco before terminating his deal with the Ligue 1 side in January.
