    Jamaica international Leon Bailey has been told he will be allowed to leave Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen during the summer transfer window if the price is right.

    The 22-year-old winger was routinely listed among the most coveted targets during the previous two transfer windows.  However, a stop-start kind of season, due to recent injury, has removed some of that lustre and plunged the player’s transfer value as well.  The player has, however, in recent times been linked with a number of English Premier League clubs, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, and most recently Everton and Tottenham.

    Aidy Ward, the player's new agent, has revealed that he is prepared to hold talks with the club concerning the Jamaican’s future.

    "The club has told his stepfather that he can leave for a certain amount of money," Ward told Sport1.

    "As soon as I have talked to the club, and the situation is clear, we will now know to do. If the club wants to sell, it's no problem. Then we'll talk to each other and come to an agreement,” he added.

    “If they don't want to sell, it's no problem either. In this case, we'll leave the situation and move on. It's that simple.”
