Weston McKennie Joins Leeds United on Loan
USMNT’s Weston McKennie has joined Leeds United on a season-long loan from Juventus after passing a medical. The Premier League club announced the move on Monday. The midfielder had been told he could leave Juventus after making 15 appearances in Serie A this season. The loan will cost around £1.5 million and Leeds will have the option to sign him permanently for £35 million at the end of the season.

Joao Cancelo Heads to Bayern Munich on Loan
Bayern Munich has signed Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo on loan with an option to make the transfer permanent this summer for €70 million.

He was a regular in Pep Guardiola’s team at the beginning of the season but has started just five of the past 14 games.
