Leeds United are not moving from their valuation of Max Wober, Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director Roland Virkus has admitted.


Wober is on loan at Gladbach for the season, choosing to trigger an escape route from Leeds when they were relegated from the Premier League.


He has impressed Gladbach and they would like to keep hold of him, but with no purchase option in the loan deal, negotiations with Leeds have to be had.



Leeds want €12m to let Wober go and Gladbach find such a sum too high for the Austria international.


Virkus admits there have been no talks with Leeds recently because the Whites are just not changing their position; he insists the numbers involved are high.



“There have been no discussions recently because Leeds are not moving”, Virkus admitted to German magazine Kicker (via Fussball Transfers).


“If we don’t reach an agreement with Leeds then it will be difficult to progress.



“At the moment it is just that the numbers are quite high.”


Wober is believed to be ready to stay at Gladbach on a permanent basis if they can find common ground with Leeds.


The Whites did not want to lose Wober last summer, but were left powerless when he triggered an exit clause in his contract.
