Stuttgart rejects Leverkusen’s bid for Leno
Stuttgart says it has turned down Bayer Leverkusen’s bid for
goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
Director of sports Fredi Bobic tells Kicker magazine Leverkusen
made ”an offer not worth mentioning” and that Stuttgart wants to
keep Leno anyway.
Leno was Stuttgart’s backup keeper when he was sent on loan to
Leverkusen at the start of the season to fill in for the injured
Rene Adler. The time of Adler’s return from knee surgery remains
uncertain and Leverkusen is keen to retain the talented Leno after
the loan deal expires on Dec. 31.
