Leeds signed Augustin on loan from RB Leipzig in January 2020, with an agreement in place to make the move permanent if the Whites earned promotion.


The striker struggled to make an impact at Elland Road and was sent back to RB Leipzig at the end of his loan contract despite Leeds winning the Championship.



While Leeds argued that they were obligated to buy Augustin only if they got promoted before 30th June, which they did not due to an unprecedented break in the season last year, RB Leipzig felt there was a breach of contract and took the Whites to FIFA.


The German top flight club, who filed a lawsuit last year, were expecting a judgement in March or April, but are still waiting for an update from FIFA.



Addressing the issue, RB Leipzig supremo Mintzlaff revealed that the club are still waiting for FIFA’s verdict on the matter and insisted that the club officials are very relaxed about the situation.


We are still waiting for the verdict“, Mintzlaff said on a supporters’ video conference.



We are very relaxed about this.


While Leeds and RB Leipzig are entangled in a legal dispute, things have gone from bad to worse for Augustin, who has struggled to make an impact at Nantes following his move last summer.
