Leeds potentially looking at Stevenage striker Godden


Leeds are reportedly looking at Stevenage forward Matthew Godden to bolster Thomas Christiansen’s attacking options.

Godden scored 20 league goals in 39 starts for The Boro after a move from Ebbsfleet where he scored 35 goals in 70 appearances.

Leeds were one of a dozen teams looking at the 26 year old at Stevenage’s recent game with Grimbsy.

The striker hasn’t scored yet this season but missed the first couple of games of the campaign due to injury.

Godden is said to be a hard-working centre forward and would be available for around £1 million.

Here’s a video of Godden’s goals last season….

The striker began his career at Scunthorpe and played for The Iron between 2009 and 2014 but only made 21 appearances in total, the majority of those coming off the bench.

Numerous loan spells signalled the end of his career at Scunthorpe and Godden joined Ebbsfleet for free in 2014 before Stevenage signed him up in 2016.

It could be seen as a gamble to bring in a player who has little experience in the higher leagues but Leeds haven’t put a foot wrong in this transfer window and the scouting networks judgement isn’t something to be worried about.
